The sad news reached me that our colleague, Karlheinz Schüssler, has passed away. He died in a tragic car accident in Istria on October 7.
The Coptologists know Karlheinz mainly as the tireless editor of Biblia Coptica. Die koptischen Bibeltexte. He was always very generous, nice and friendly with me. Some years ago, he graciously sent me several volumes of Biblia Coptica and many off-prints of his articles.
We often discussed Coptic manuscripts and have collaborated several times. The last time we spoke was on October 1, a week before his death. He will be sorely missed by his family, friends and colleagues.
