Scribal Repertoires in Egypt from the New Kingdom to the Early Islamic Period

Edited by Jennifer Cromwell and Eitan Grossman

Oxford Studies in Ancient Documents

  • Utilizes an innovative sociolinguistic methodology to bring the study of scribal texts out of the domain of a language-specific philological discipline into a broader set of theoretical concerns
  • Focuses on a diverse range of non-Western European languages, highlighting comparative issues and providing invaluable comparative data for scholars interested in scribes outside this well-studied region
  • Highlights historical and linguistic (dis)continuities in a single geographical location over thousands of years
  • Offers analysis of different types of scribal variation across a wide variety of textual genres
