      Biography- Dr. Heike Behlmer is currently lecturer in Coptic Studies at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia (www.mq.edu.au <http://www.mq.edu.au/> ). She directs the new and unique MA program in Coptic Studies, which can be completed entirely on-line and is open for enrollment to students world-wide.

      Dr. Behlmer obtained her dissertation at the University of Guttingen, Germany, with an edition of, and commentary on, an important sermon of St Shenoute, a foremost Coptic author and church leader (348-466 AD), which is preserved on a papyrus manuscript of the 7th century.

      Among her many interests Egyptian monasticism from the 4th to the 8th centuries counts as her main research topic.

      Before taking up her position at Macquarie University she was Assistant Professor of Egyptology and Coptic Studies at the University of Guttingen and visiting Professor of Coptic Studies at the University of Munich, Germany.
