BnF Copte 129 (20) fol. 178: Three Healing Prescriptions

  • Markéta Preininger


BnF Copte 129 (20) fol. 178 is a codex sheet containing several healing prescriptions. The first text is a fumigation recipe for a gynaecological issue including a prayer to be spoken during this procedure, the second is a prayer for healing deafness referring to Malchus, and the third is an unknown prescription. Editions of these texts are produced and contextualized in this paper, with some older Egyptian, Greek, and later Arabic healing texts taken into consideration.
