The Mudil Codex from the late 4th century contains the Biblical Psalms in Coptic. However, the text differs significantly from familiar versions of the Psalms, giving rise to the question of whether we are dealing with an original form of the text. The comprehensive analysis presented here demonstrates the tradition in which this fascinating text is located, how it arose, and what significance it has for research into the Psalms generally and the Coptic Bible manuscripts in particular.

News report of digitizing Mss. at St Catherine's monastery

Saving a treasured trove, ever so slowly
Ancient manuscripts from Mt. Sinai move into the digital age with the help of a Bedouin camel driver's son.
By Suzanne Muchnic, Times Staff Writer
February 5, 2007

SINAI, EGYPT — On a refreshingly cool morning, before the sun drenches every exposed grain of sand in this vast desert, Hemeid Sobhy sets out on foot from the Bedouin village where he lives with his parents and sisters. Neatly dressed in jeans, sport shirt and sturdy sandals, he walks 40 minutes to the Holy Monastery of St. Catherine.

About the author(s)
Petra M. Sijpesteijn, who holds a Ph.D. in Near Eastern studies from Princeton University (2004), is currently a Junior Research Fellow in Oriental Studies at Christ Church, Oxford. Her forthcoming book is entitled The Formation of a Muslim State: The World of an Early Muslim Egyptian Administrator.
Lennart Sundelin is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University. He is currently teaching in the Department of History at Miami University.
Sofía Torallas Tovar gained her Ph.D. in classical philology from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. She is currently a permanent research fellow at the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) in Madrid and is also the curator of the papyrus collection of the Abbey of Montserrat.
Amalia Zomeño is a research fellow at the Escuela de Estudios Árabes in Granada. She holds a Ph.D. in Arabic philology from Barcelona University and was a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University (1998-2000). The main topic of her research is Islamic law.



As in many areas of pre-modern history, the study of medieval Islamic history has been critically hindered by the lack of available evidence. Unlike many parallel fields, however, the shortage of contemporary documentary evidence for medieval Islam has less to do with the survival of documents and archives as with their accessibility.
A rich documentary legacy survives, but because of its inaccessibility and unfamiliarity to all but the most specialised scholars in the field, it has remained sadly underutilised. This volume contributes to the redressing of that problem. It collects papers given at the conference "Documents and the History of the Early Islamic Mediterranean World," including editions of unpublished documents and historical studies, which make use of documentary evidence from al-Andalus, Sicily, Egypt, the Arabian Peninsula, Syria and Khurasan.

Griechische Papyrusurkunden kleineren Formats. Neuedition

Mit den drei vorliegenden Faszikeln startet die Kommission für Antike Rechtsgeschichte der Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften die Neuausgabe des vom Wiener Papyrologen Karl Wessely in den Jahren 1904 und 1908 herausgegebenen zweiteiligen Editionscorpus „Griechische Urkunden kleineren Formats“ (Studien zur Paläographie und Papyruskunde III & VIII). Wesselys Doppelband enthält insgesamt 1350 antike Urkunden in griechischer Sprache, die für die Rechts-, Verwaltungs-, Sozial- und Wirtschaftsgeschichte Ägyptens im 5.–8. Jh. n. Chr. von herausragender Bedeutung sind und Rückschlüsse auf die gesellschaftlichen und wirtschaftlichen Verhältnisse in anderen Teilen des Mittelmeerraumes in Spätantike und frühem Mittelalter bzw. früharabischer Zeit zulassen. Die Neuausgabe stellt einen erheblichen Fortschritt gegenüber der autographen Erstedition dar. Die Revision der Originale in den Sammlungen von Wien, Paris und Berlin hat zahlreiche substantielle Neulesungen erbracht und vielfach die Zusammenfügung von Fragmenten ermöglicht. Die Urkunden werden übersetzt und umfassend kommentiert. Jeder Faszikel ist mit einer umfangreichen Einleitung versehen, in welcher die vorgelegten Papyri im Hinblick auf verbindende formale und inhaltliche Merkmale ausgewertet werden, sowie mit Indizes und einem Tafelteil, der Abbildungen aller Urkunden enthält. Mit der Neuausgabe werden die Texte erstmals in ihrer ganzen Aussagekraft präsentiert und überdies auch dem nicht-papyrologischen Fachpublikum zugänglich gemacht. Das Gesamtwerk ist auf zehn Bände angelegt.

The publication of these three volumes marks the beginning of a project that has been launched by the Commission for Ancient Legal History of the Austrian Academy of Sciences aiming at a completely revised edition of approximately 1350 Greek papyri that were formerly published in 1904 and 1908 as "Griechische Urkunden kleineren Formats" (Studien zur Paläographie und Papyruskunde III & VIII) by the Viennese scholar Carl Wessely. The documents are not only central to our knowledge about the various aspects of law, administration, society and economy in ancient Egypt from the 5th to the 8th century AD, but they also provide essential insights into the social and economic conditions of the Mediterranean world during the ancient as well as the early medieval and Arabic period. The edition is a fundamental revision of all the material and includes numerous new readings and corrections based on the original documents and the piecing together of fragments whenever possible. Every text is presented with a full translation, extended annotations and editorial notes, indices and plates, and each volume contains a detailed introduction to the groups of documents, their contents and formal features. The complete edition is scheduled to comprise ten volumes.
