Item description for Encomiastica from the Pierpont Morgan Library (Scriptores Coptici 48) (Corpus Scriptorum Christianorum Orientalium) by L Depuydt...

"Encomiastica from the Pierpont Morgan Library" continues a collaborative effort to make available in edition and translation what remains unpublished of the Coptic literary manuscripts at the Pierpont Morgan Library. A first volume appeared under the title Homiletica from the Pierpont Morgan Library (CSCO 524 and 525). The introduction to the text volume includes sections on the texts, the manuscripts, and the language, as well as some addenda to Homiletica and to the Catalogue of Coptic Manuscripts in the Pierpont Morgan Library (Peeters 1993). In the introduction to the translation volume, S. Harvey discusses the cultural and historical setting of the five texts. The texts are attributed to Anastasius of Euchaita, Epiphanius of Salamis, Isaac of Antinoe, Severian of Gabala, and Theopempus of Antioch, but these attributions are probably spurious. The works may have been composed as late as the seventh or eight century AD in Coptic, with the thematic features being derived from earlier sources, possibly including Greek church fathers, and in certain instances perhaps even the authors to which they are attributed; but this matter awaits further investigation.
