An analysis of 66 Coptic and Greek texts, most of which were written by or to monks from the Apa Apollo Monastery between the 6th and 9th centuries. Many of the texts are legal and fiscal documents and therefore provide an invaluable source for the economic activities and administration of both the monastery and the Coptic Egyptian Church as a whole. The volume also includes a detailed discussion of the texts' palaeographic and orthographic features. Each text is presented with an English translation and commentary.
