It is Our Father Who Writes: Orders from the Monastery of Apollo at Bawit

Hardback
Editions of ninety-one papyri associated with the day-to-day administration of the Monastery of Apollo at Bawit during the VIII century, seventy-eight of which are published for the first time. Many of the papyri are orders issued by the head of the monastery to various subordinates, and the texts' contents are minutely analyzed in the copious introduction. The majority of the texts were written in Coptic script, with a very few in Greek; the Coptic texts, however, often include a Greek word or phrase.
