Beginning Coptic II

Classics 189 - Spring 2021

After completing the remaining grammar lessons, we will build skill and confidence as translators by reading selections from a variety of Coptic text: the Sahidic Gospel of Mark, the hagiographic Life of John the Monk, selections from the Gospels of Mary and Thomas, and a unique Coptic translation of Plato's Republic. In our readings from the Bible and Plato, those who read Classical Greek will also have the opportunity to study how ancient translators chose to render the Greek texts into Egyptian, and how, in the process of translation, they changed the meaning of the originals. Prereq: Classics L08 188: Beginning Coptic I or permission of the instructor.
