Isaiah- In Coptic
- List folk may find this report interesting:
The archaeological mystery has been solved! The latest research shows
that the manuscript found by Polish archaeologists in the village of
Gourna (Sheikh abd el-Gourna) near Luxor in Upper Egypt contains the
entire biblical book of Isaiah in the Coptic translation. “This is the
first complete translation of this book in Coptic” – says Prof. Ewa
Wipszycka-Bravo of the Institute of Archaeology at Warsaw University.
In February last year, Tomasz Górecki heading the Centre of
Mediterranean Archaeology at the Warsaw University mission in Gourna,
made a unique find in the rubbish heap of a monastery. It consisted of
two papyrus books in leather covers and a collection of parchment sheets
bound by two bits of wood. This was the first discovery of Coptic
manuscripts in Egypt since 1952, which are well preserved and supported
by a well-researched archaeological context.
And apologies if this has been mentioned and I missed it.
