Present: Stephen EMMEL (President), Tito ORLANDI, Martin KRAUSE, Jacques VAN DER VLIET, Peter GROSSMANN, Nathalie BOSSON, Anne BOUD'HORS, W_odzimierz GODLEWSKI, Marie-Hélène RUTSCHOWSCAYA.


The President convened the meeting at 10.05.


1. The Board heard, discussed, and approved a detailed report from the Congress Secretary concerning arrangements for the Seventh International Congress of Coptic Studies to be held in Leiden in 2000. Welcomed as guests for this portion of the Board Meeting were other members of Leiden University's organizing committee: J.F. BORGHOUTS, Johannes DEN HEIJER, and Karel C. INNEMÉE (Paul VAN MOORSEL was excused). The congress program will be similar to previous congress programs, with plenary reports by invited speakers, followed by two parallel sessions of papers submitted by participants, and including a number of specialized workshops (organized well in advance of the congress, subject to approval by the organizing committee). The topics of the plenary reports will be as follows: language; philology and literature; art; archeology; monasticism; liturgy; gnosticism and manichaeism; Copto-arabic studies; Christian Nubia; papyrology.


2. The Board heard, discussed, and approved a financial report for 1997-1998 (up to 10.12.98) from the Editor-Treasurer, the President, and the President-Elect. In accordance with a previous decision of the Board (see Newsletter 37, p. 15, point 1), most of the funds of the IACS have been transferred from Rome to Münster, and the remainder will be transferred during 1999. Despite the complexity of the operation, moving the IACS Secretariat from Rome to Münster has been successful. Many members have paid in advance through 1999 or 2000, a few even as far as 2005. Most payments have been received without undue losses through banking fees, although it is clear that the only form of payment that is more or less risk-free in this respect is payment in German marks. Presumably the same will be true also for the euro, beginning in 1999. At the Business Meeting in 2000 it will be necessary to establish official IACS fees in euros; for the meantime, the Editor-Treasurer was authorized to establish unofficial rates in euros and DM.


3. The Board reviewed the current status of IACS membership and discussed what to do in all cases where members' fees are not paid up as of 1994 or earlier, and in the cases of members whose addresses are no longer known.


4. The Board approved two recent applications for IACS membership.


5. The Editor-Treasurer and the President reported that the publication of the Akten des 6. Internationalen Koptologenkongresses (Münster 1996) is proceeding as expected. All but a few proofs have been returned by the authors, and it is expected that the two-volume publication will appear in 1999.


6. The President-Elect reported on the establishment of an IACS web site on the internet (in accordance with a previous decision of the Board; see Newsletter 37, p. 15, point 2) and listened to the comments and advice of those members of the Board who had visited the site.


7. The President reported that he is following up on a letter that he received from the president of the American University in Cairo, in response to one of the letters that he had been directed to write to certain authorities in Egypt, urging that chairs of Coptic studies be established there (see Newsletter 37, p. 14, point 14.b).


8. The Board discussed the Journal of Coptic Studies, expressing once again its desire to see EMMEL continue as editor and its hope that the current difficulty that he is experiencing in carrying out this duty (i.e., altogether too many duties) will be alleviated in due course. The President pointed out that the only sure way to alter the present situation would be to find someone to replace him as editor, which the Board took under advisement.


9. The President reminded the Board of the necessity to prepare a proposal for revising the IACS Statutes at the next Business Meeting, in view of structural changes that the IACS is now undergoing (cf. Newsletter 37, p. 9, point 6).


10. RUTSCHOWSCAYA and BOSSON reported on preliminary inquiries into the possibility that the Eighth International Congress of Coptic Studies in 2004 might be held in Paris, organized at the École du Louvre. The President agreed to work with them to explore this attractive possibility further.


11. The President and the Editor-Treasurer reported that in 1999 the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) intends to increase from two to four the number of expert evaluators (Gutachter) for applications in Egyptology and has called upon the German section of the International Association of Egyptologists to nominate candidates for these positions. In view of the desireability that at least one Gutachter be a specialist in Coptic studies, it would be helpful in the future if the IACS had a recognized "Germanophone section" that could offer its services to the DFG as a conduit for nominations from IACS members in Germanophone countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland). The Board approved, and it charged the President with taking the necessary steps to inform the DFG about the IACS's readiness to be of assistance.


12. The Board approved a proposal by the President that the Board should bear the cost of a part of BOSSON's travel expenses to attend this Board Meeting.


The President adjourned the meeting at 14.15.






The publication of the Akten des 6. Internationalen Koptologenkongresses (edited by Stephen Emmel, Martin Krause, Siegfried G. Richter, and Sofia Schaten) is progressing toward completion. Proofs of all 106 articles were delivered to their authors before the end of the winter, and all have since been returned with the authors' corrections (except for one article that had to be withdrawn, and another whose author has disappeared). The editors expect to deliver the complete camera-ready copy to Reichert Verlag during July. The two-volume publication (1100+ pages) will appear as vol. 6 in the series Sprachen und Kulturen des Christlichen Orients. Contributors will each receive 20 offprints of their article; the press does not make it possible to receive additional offprints.





Personalized statements regarding payment of fees were sent out to all IACS members in May/June1999, including receipts for payments received during 1997- 1998 (these receipts serving to replace the previous system of membership cards and annual stickers). Within Europe, at present the best method of paying dues is by direct transfer ("Überweisung") to the following account:



Account number: 9040-467

Bank code: 440 100 46



If possible, make the transfer in DM (converted at the current rate; or use the following equivalents for 1999: $ 25 = DM 46; $ 15 = DM 28; $ 12 = DM 22). If you pay by eurocheque, please write the check in DM. Make eurocheques or personal checks payable to the International Association for Coptic Studies and send them to the IACS secretariat. In all cases, be sure to indicate your name and the year(s) for which you are paying. If you want to begin using euros for making payments, please use the current exchange rate, or the following equivalents for 1999: $ 25 = EUR 24.12; $ 15 = EUR 14.47; $ 12 = EUR 11.58). Please also keep us informed of any change of address or any change in your membership status.

Henceforward the most recent paid up dues year appears with members' names on the printed IACS mailing labels, as used for the first time with this Newsletter (reflecting payments received up to 15 July 1999).





1. World Wide Web (WWW, "the Web") Site

The IACS's Web site is managed by Tito Orlandi on the server of the CISADU, the electronic center of the Facoltà di Lettere of the University of Rome "La Sapienza." The IACS home page provides access to the following pages (others are still in preparation): (1) addresses of Coptologists (with surface and e-mail addresses); (2) recent news (information provided by IACS members, and others); (3) Seventh International Congress of Coptic Studies (Leiden, 2000) (with a link to the Congress Web site in Leiden); (4) IACS Newsletter (currently nos. 35 and 36 are displayed); (5) Coptic teaching in the world (list of academic institutions where Coptic language, literature, art, archaeology, or theology, etc., are taught); (6) Coptic centers outside of Egypt (list of organizations sponsored by Coptic people for the promotion of Coptic language and culture); and (7) congresses in related disciplines. The address (URL) of the IACS home page is:

Like the Newsletter, the Web site is based on the collaboration of the IACS members, who are requested to submit whatever information they deem useful for their colleagues. Such information should be sent to Tito Orlandi, preferably by e-mail (; or by regular post to the following address: Via F. Civinini 24, I-00197 Roma, Italy). We try to share information between Münster and Rome effectively enough that information need be sent only to one place or the other, but in practice this is not so easy to do. If possible, please send information both to Münster and to Rome when it is relevant to both the ordinary administration of the IACS (including the Newsletter) as well as the IACS Web site.


2. The Listserver (please note the corrected address given here)

COPTIST is an electronic interest group (technically called a "list") for Coptic studies. The COPTIST list, which has been established on the server of the CISADU, is moderated by Tito Orlandi on behalf of the IACS. Interested IACS members are invited to subscribe to COPTIST by doing as follows: to the e-mail address, send a message consisting of ONLY one line, namely: subscribe coptist [your-name] (e.g.: subscribe coptist Stephen Emmel). The list is a "closed" one, i.e. every new subscriber must be approved by the list's moderator, in this case Prof. Orlandi, acting in the name of the board of the IACS.





Where only e-mail addresses are listed, the postal addresses remain unchanged. * = new members.
