Banque de données des textes coptes documentaires

This site is a comprehensive, periodically updated database of Coptic documentary texts, administered by Alain Delattre of the Université Libre de Bruxelles.  Although users cannot browse it, there are a number of useful search options, including sigla (i.e., abbreviation for the collection in which it is published), inventory number (of the collection in which the text is located); material; dialect; origin; date; and a variety of content tags in French.  This data, when it exists, has been entered for each published papyrus; the Coptic text is not yet available.  The site is part of Trismegistos, the broader research portal on Graeco-Roman Egypt, where it is known as the “Brussels Coptic Database.”  While there are far fewer published documentary texts in Coptic than Greek, the number is something approaching 10,000, and this site constitutes a major service to scholars of the social history of Late Antique and Early Islamic Egypt.
