Coptic Text

This part of the web site is still under construction. I'm planning to add images and a translation.

In the editio princeps of the Gospel of Thomas, there are numerals that refer to the plates of the photographic edition by P. Labib, Coptic Gnostic Papyri in the Coptic Museum at Old Cairo, Vol. I, Cairo, 1956, plates 80-99. Instead of referring to plate numbers, reference is now made to the inferred original pagination (the codex did not originally have page numbers) as proposed in The Facsimile Edition of the Nag Hammadi Codices, Codex II, Leiden, 1974:
