    The Electronic Database of CMCL, containing a great amount
    of information on the Coptic Manuscripts and Literature,
    with full texts, and information on the Coptic civilization
    at large, is now available on line:


    The access is reserved to the subscribers: one year, Euro 180;

    The Database covers the following subjects, partly in Italian,
    partly in English:

    Coptic literature with information on manuscripts, content, and
    critical problems.

    or reconstructed, especially from the Monastery of St. Shenoute,
    Atripe (White Monastery)
