Welcome to BerlPap

The Berlin Papyrus Database (BerlPap) is a project sponsored by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for the digitization of large parts of the inventory of the Berlin Papyrus Collection. The goal of this project is to make available an online database, which contains the digital images and all the relevant metadata for the Greek and Latin texts of the Berlin Papyrus Collection that have been preserved on papyri, ostraka, parchment, wood tablets, wax tablets, as well as paper. The online database should therefore offer all scholars of antiquity and those interested in ancient Egypt access to high-quality images of the original objects and additional information. Links to other databases allow for further enrichment.
