About-

The definitive Coptic dictionary

Crum's work is the result of more than thirty years of research and collaboration with numerous scholars. Originally published in 1939, it immediately became, and has remained, the definitive dictionary of the Coptic language. Each word is given with variant word-forms, its context in English summary, the original or equivalent words in Greek, and illustration of its use. Indexes of English, Greek, and Arabic words are also provided. The new Foreword by James M. Robinson provides the reader with an up-to-date summary of the current state of Coptic studies.

Endorsements & Reviews-

". . . the fruit of a lifetime of detailed research. . . . There is in fact no replacement for 'Crum.' . . . [Later works] stand on Crum's shoulders and will never replace Crum as the foundation on which modern Coptology has been built."
--James M. Robinson
from the Foreword

"Coptology is fortunate to have among its tools one of the finest of ancient language dictionaries, that by W. E. Crum."
--Richard Smith
author of 'A Concise Coptic-English Lexicon'
