      |The Packard Humanities Institute is reputed to have available on its
      PHI CD ROM
      |collection many Coptic Texts including the CNT and Nag Hammadi texts.
      Has
      |anyone seen this material?

      ||Thanks Mike for digging into this. On two or three occasions I have
      |gone to the St
      ||Shenouda site at [ [ http://www.stshenouda.com/society/copticcd.htm
      ||]http://www.stshenouda.com/society/copticcd.htm
      ||][ http://www.stshenouda.com/society/copticcd.htm
      ||]http://www.stshenouda.com/society/copticcd.htm to order the Coptic NT
      |CD and
      ||every time was unsuccessful when I clicked the "Submit" button (got
      the
      |dreaded
      ||"Page No Found" message.
      ||
      ||As an alternative I downloaded the Sahidica material but I'm not too
      |keen on the font
      ||used with it. As far as the Marcion product I agree with other
      |observations that it is
      ||simply too cumbersome to be workable.
      ||
      ||But back to the Takla resource: Is the material offered there (via
      ||subscription) searchable? What is the format like (presumably all the
      |strokes are
      ||there)?

      ||||
      ||||
      ||||Further information on the relationship between the Takla and Wells
      ||versions of
      ||||the Coptic NT has been provided to me by Hany Takla in off-list
      |email.
      ||||I
      ||had
      ||||sent him a copy of my last list note on the subject, and wrote to
      him
      ||||as
      ||follows:
      ||||
      ||||"I thought you might be interested in the following note that I sent
      ||||to my GThomas list yesterday, especially since your name came into
      |it.
      ||||If you
      ||have
      ||||any observations on any of the issues discussed here, I'd love to
      |hear
      ||them. (I
      ||||won't pass them along to the list unless you give your permission to
      ||||do
      ||so.)"
      ||||
      ||||Hany's response was as follows:
      ||||
      ||||"In explanation I would like to add that the Coptic CD that was
      ||||initially distributed by the Society had four modules of my own work
      ||||that included a Course in Bohairic with recorded pronunciation,
      ||||Bohairic-English
      ||Dictionary, An
      ||||Annual Lectionary of the Feasts in the Coptic Church, and the Coptic
      ||||New Testament. Since we exhausted the stock of this CD, the first
      two
      ||||modules
      ||were
      ||||licensed to COEPA organization in Australia to distribute with one
      of
      ||their
      ||||electronic products. The New Testament CD became a separate CD and
      |was
      ||||distributed for a reduced price when ordered as you have seen. As
      you
      ||||know the Sahidic Text was based on the latest complete texts
      |published
      ||||after
      ||Horner's
      ||||edition. I added the superlineal strokes and changed the word
      |division
      ||||to
      ||better
      ||||serve the grammatical meaning. However, despite many reviews there
      ||||were multiple typos. J. Warren Wells was good enough to correct many
      ||||if not all
      ||these
      ||||typos in his produced text.
      ||||
      ||||"Currently I set up for the Society a subscription site ([ [
      ||||http://demo.stshenouda.info/tc.htm
      ||||]http://demo.stshenouda.info/tc.htm
      ||||][ http://demo.stshenouda.info/tc.htm
      ||||]http://demo.stshenouda.info/tc.htm) that houses all the separate
      ||||files
      ||for the
      ||||New Testament that were on the CD plus all the periodicals that the
      ||Society has
      ||||issued or are currently issued along with contents of some of our
      ||||library holdings and our own manuscript collection. With regards to
      ||||the New
      ||Testament
      ||||I will be making corrections to the texts periodically and post
      them.
      ||||Also
      ||I am
      ||||planning to release some of the Old Testament Texts that I have done
      ||||from either published sources or manuscript copies in the Microform
      ||||library of
      ||the
      ||||Society. This information can be distributed as you see fit. Take
      |care."
      ||||
      ||||I have expressed my thanks to Hany for sharing this information with
      |us.
