Welcome to BerlPap

The Berlin Papyrus Database (BerlPap) is a project sponsored by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for the inventory and digitization of Greek and Latin texts of the Berlin Papyrus Collection. In 2023, the Coptic literary texts were added, which were processed by the Coptic Manuscripts Unit of the Academy Project Union Catalogue of Oriental Manuscripts. BerlPap offer all classicists and those interested in antiquity direct access to thousands of texts from Egypt in the Greco-Roman period (4th cent. BCE – 7th cent. AD).
