An Elementary Coptic Grammar of the Sahidic Dialect

Colin Walters

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Classical Texts

Coptic is the language of the Ancient Egyptians written in Greek letters (with some additions) and though it is no longer spoken it is still the liturgical language of the Coptic Christians of Egypt. It is thus of great interest to those learning ancient Egyptian as well as those who want to study one of the earliest Christian traditions.
