Brussels Copitc database

Université Libre de Bruxelles

Centre de Papyrologie et d'Épigraphie grecque

Brussels Coptic Database

Alain Delattre

This work, started early in 2000, was conceived on the model of the Heidelberger Gesamtverzeichnis der Griechischen Papyrusurkunden Ägyptens , which had to be adapted to the specificities of the Coptic material.

The database regroups all the documentary Coptic texts published, i.e. approximately 6700 documents. This database will be updated periodically.

A card is devoted to each text. The information is recorded in the following fields : sigla, inventory number, support, origin, date, dialect, content, bibliography and remarks.
