Papyrologists at Work: Coptic Papyri and the History of Late Antique and Early Islamic Egypt – Alain Delattre
Coptic papyrology was born almost 150 years ago, and since then the study of papyri and ostraca written in Coptic has yielded a wealth of information about Late Antique and Early Islamic Egypt. The lecture will look at some of the milestones in the history of the discipline and detail the prospects and challenges facing papyrologists.
