The Text of Matthew's Gospel

in Coptic Manuscripts of

the Fifth Century and Earlier

Not Included in Horner's Critical Editions[i]

 

Please Help Me!

This is a work in progress.  If you notice anything missing, please let me know (leave a message on my home page).  In particular, I'd like to get a hold of the privately distributed Concordance to Short Texts and Fragments in the Middle Egyptian Dialect of Coptic by  W-P Funk.
