Coptic scholarship is still quite far from having an agreement on how and where the Egyptian language was affected by Greek. It is indeed an intriguing question whether outside of loanwords Greek had any influence on Coptic. Andra Haznos' study makes observations on syntax and stylistics in translated and original Coptic literature, sifting out the syntactic patterns showing Greek influence in one or both text groups, showing how certain patterns came to be used in Coptic clearly through translations, and raising the question whether those syntactic influences which came to the Egyptian language through the bilingual situation can be detected with certainty. With these observations the author helps develop the criterium system needed to determine whether a Coptic text was written in Coptic or Greek originally. While examining the final clauses, consecutive clauses, object clauses/infinitive constructions after verbs of exhorting and subject clauses/infinitive constructions from the point of view of syntactic graecism in translations and in original Coptic texts, valuable observations on Coptic dialects (esp. Sahidic, Mesokemic, Lycopolitan) and their relations are also made.

This text offers a presentation of faith in Jesus Christ as it developed between the Council of Chalcedon (AD 451) and the advance of Islam in the Nile region. The period begins in Alexandria, leading to Ethiopia, where we see an extraordinary example of a synthesis of Judaism and Christianity. The book covers a variety of theological work by poets, exegetes, philosophers and others, offering the reader a vivid picture of the state of Christian faith in the Nile and beyond before the Islamic conquest. Particular attention is paid to Jewish influence in pre-Islamic Arabia and to recent discoveries of literary texts and religious art.

The Sahidic version of 1 Samuel is an ancient daughter version of the Septuagint. Because the Sahidic translation was made before most of the Greek manuscripts we know were copied, it potentially contains ancient readings no longer preserved or only faintly attested in the Greek tradition. This study considers the Sahidic version of 1 Samuel as a translation and how it may best be used in Greek textual criticism. The aim of this study is twofold. First, to examine the translation technique of the Sahidic translator. Second, to analyze the affiliations between the Sahidic manuscripts as well as the affiliations between the Sahidic version and Greek traditions. In the translation-technical section, clause connections and translator s additions feature prominently. In the chapter concerning the affiliations of the Sahidic text, detailed textual analyses prevail. These analyses describe the textual character of each Sahidic manuscript, and search for the existence of secondary readings and/or corruptions. This study supports the creation of a new critical edition of the Septuagint of 1 Samuel for the Göttingen series. With respect to this edition, the primary goal is to identify the affiliations of the Sahidic version. This translation-technical study, however, will additionally allow for a more careful and accurate citation of the Sahidic version within the critical apparatus of the Greek text.
