About this collection

The Iryan Moftah Coptic Language and Religion Manuscripts digital collection includes 18 handwritten manuscripts ranging from topics as diverse as Coptic language and philology to liturgy.

The Iryan Moftah Coptic Language and Religion Manuscript and Book Collection was acquired in 2003 thanks to Laurence Moftah who generously arranged for its transfer to the Rare Books and Special Collection Library in support of the preservation of Coptic heritage and the Coptic studies program at the American University in Cairo.

The manuscripts were originally described by Father Maximous El-Antony with the aid of the Rare Books and Special Collections Library in 2010. The Rare Books and Special Collections Library edited the digital images and supplemented the descriptions in 2012 and 2013.
