[The Text of the Coptic Psalter from Al-Mudil]
Aims and Scope
The Mudil Codex from the late 4th century contains the Biblical Psalms in Coptic. However, the text differs significantly from familiar versions of the Psalms, giving rise to the question of whether we are dealing with an original form of the text. The comprehensive analysis presented here demonstrates the tradition in which this fascinating text is located, how it arose, and what significance it has for research into the Psalms generally and the Coptic Bible manuscripts in particular.

"[...] this meticulous study contributes significantly to our knowledge in this area."
Peter J. Williams in: The Journal of Ecclesiastical History 3/2008
"In addition, and more obviously, readers -- in the present case probably postgraduate students, scholars and researchers in the subject matter -- will benefit tremendously from E.'s fine work, his cautious conclusions and his detailed observations (often in the form of lemmata). His book will not only become the indispensable tool for assessing the Mudil-Codex in the future but will also serve as a role model of how to work on the text and context of codices, how to compare codices, and how to interrelate manuscripts, their texts, textual variants, and text types and families with each other."
