These section is destined to contain the electronic edition and translation of the entire corpus of Coptic titles (3rd-11th century).

It is a work in progress (at present is available just a partial list of titles): as soon as a new edition is ready, this will be inserted at the same time here and in one of the relational databases on which the Atlas is based.

Coptic titles represent a privileged point of observation of the Coptic literary manuscript culture. Over the centuries, they have changed position inside the manuscript, layout, length, textual structure and even purpose, marking crucial phases of the manufacture of the writing supports – the shift from roll to codex, and from papyrus codex to parchment codex – and important passages of the history of Coptic literature – from the translations from Greek into Coptic to the production of an original literature. Moreover, they are often created later than the works they are attributed to and therefore can be considered texts in their own right. For this reason, within the scientific activities of PAThs, a Clavis Coptica has been assigned to each of them.

It must be stressed, however, that Coptic titles do not represent a trustworthy coordinate to identify a literary work (it is not rare, for instance, that the same work has different titles in different manuscripts). The only univocal way to refer to a work is the Clavis Coptica.
