It is Our Father Who Writes : Orders from the Monastery of Apollo at Bawit Hardback
Part of the American Studies in Papyrology series
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 analysed in the 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.
