The Bohairic Coptic Thematic Lexicon

This website is the homepage of the ‘Thematic dictionary of Bohairic Coptic,’ a research project run at the Polis Institute, Jerusalem.
In the framework of the project, we digitize ancient Bohairic texts and create a corpus-based annotated lexicon.
Each lexical item is linked to its Ancient Egyptian, Greek or Arabic predecessors or cognates.

For example the word ‘snake’:
