CDM: Coptic Digital Manuscripts

Coptic Society

Beginning in the mid 1990s the Society started to explore ways to digitize the microfilm images in the collection. In 2002 we stated a year-long program to digitize the majority of the microfilm collection of manuscripts in the possession of the Society. In 2014, the Society acquired a Microform digitizing system made possible in part by a grant of the Museum of the Bible/Hobby Lobby Stores in addition to individual contributions by our members. Further, the Society was able to secure digital copies of other manuscripts from Egypt as well as other collections. The following is a list of the Society digital Holdings:
