Upon the invitation of Fr. Columba Stewart, next summer I will teach an intensive Coptic course in the United States, together with my colleague, Victor Ghica (Norwegian School of Theology, Oslo). The course is funded by Dumbarton Oaks and will be hosted at HMML, Collegeville, Minnesota, between July 7 and August 2. The deadline for applications is February 15, so, if interested, there is still time to apply. We will do lots of Coptic literature and manuscripts! Here follows the official announcement.Should be a good Summer School. I have linked often to Dr. Suciu's interesting blog posts on mostly Coptic matters.
You may recall that Fr. Columba Stewart is one of Iraq's heroic Manuscripts Men.
