Guest Post: Anthony Alcock – Theodore of Antioch, In Theodorum Anatolium (clavis coptica 0382; BHO 382)

The Coptic text and English translation of this so-called Encomium can be found in E.A.W Budge Miscellaneous Coptic Texts (1915) pp.1-48 and 765-813. A description of the text is given on pp. xxxiii to xxxv. It is numbered Oriental 7030 and has 43 vellum leaves. According to Budge (p. xxxiii) the text bears clear signs of extensive use. The binding has fragments of another encomium, which, in the absence of a colophon, provides the date of the production of the volume: 995 AD. It is the only text in the manuscript. The pages numbers in brackets in the translation are those used in the book. The summary of the text can be found in pp. lxii to lxxv.
