The Coptic tradition of the New Testament

At present the transmission of the Acts of the Apostles is being examined and prepared for the Coptic section of the Editio Critica Maior. First the extensive manuscript material, scattered and mostly fragmentary in collections all over the world, has to be registered and subjected to a difficult process of collection and examination for an affiliation to already known manuscript parts, before a list of Coptic manuscripts for the Acts of the Apostles can finally be compiled.

For the Acts of the Apostles with its Sahidic, Bohairic, Fayyumic and Mesokemic manuscripts will be examined. Initially the internal development of these translations have to be studied. Then their relationship with their Greek exemplars will be explored, thus preparing the citation of the Coptic evidence in the ECM apparatus.
