Researching Coptic Studies in AUC Libraries

The topic of Coptic Studies is Late Antique Christian Egypt. Both foci are represented in Göttingen in a single institute and are taught as one subject. Therefore students can gain a particularly comprehensive view of the characteristics and development of architecture, figurative art and literature in pre-modern Egypt. 

This guide serves as a starting point for researchers and students interested in Coptic studies. It contains information on selected resources from the AUC collections, and provides links to a number of e-resources, including reference sources, databases and indexes, e-book and journal collections. Please note that while some electronic resources are freely available, others are subscription services provided by the AUC Library, so remote access may be necessary when accessing from off-campus.

There is a separate guide for Ancient Egypt.  Note that you can also find some relevant tools in some other guides, such as Ancient Near East Research Guide, etc.
