1. General

The congress in Leiden promises to be an exciting and, indeed, "big" event. At the moment of writing (second half of July), over 180 scholars from all over the world are registered for the congress, and almost 120 abstracts for short papers have been received. In spite of these impressive numbers, the organizers will do their best to make it an enjoyable and relaxed event as well.What follows is not full programme information, but merely a few things you might like to know before you depart for Leiden.

a. You are on the list of participants only if you registered through the Leids Congres Bureau (LCB) by filling out and sending in the registration form that was inserted into IACS Newsletter no. 40 and the yellow congress brochure that was circulated separately. If you registered before the end of June, you should have received a letter of confirmation from the LCB sometime in the middle or second half of July. If you did not receive such a letter, please contact the LCB (fax: +31-71-512 80 95; e-mail:

b. You are on the list of speakers only if the abstract of your paper was received in time and accepted by the congress committee. If you sent your abstract before 1 June, the official deadline for submitting abstracts, you should have received a letter with regard to acceptance by the end of June or the beginning of July. If you did not receive this letter, despite having sent an abstract, please notify the congress secretary immediately (fax: +31-71-527 20 42; e-mail: Main speakers received a separate confirmation. Note that abstracts received after 1 August cannot be integrated into the volume of abstracts, but will be distributed on loose sheets.

c. For all questions concerning your hotel reservation, please contact the Leids Congres Bureau (fax: +31-71-512 80 95; e-mail:, unless you made arrangements directly through the congress office (Magdalena Kuhn, Jacques van der Vliet) or privately.

d. For specifically touristic information: Leiden Promotie VVV, Stationsweg 2d (near the railway station; tel. +31-0900-22 22 333); or, on the internet at the following address:


2. Arrival

If you arrive by public transport and do not already know your way around Leiden, we advise you first to pass by the Visitors' Centre of Leiden University, in the hall of Leiden Central Station, next to the ticket office. This is a special facility of the University to welcome and help its (foreign) guests. The Visitors' Centre will be opened on Sunday, 27 August, from 3 till 9 p.m. and on the following working days from 8 to 8 (but not on Saturdays). The Centre's staff can provide you with a map (city plan) and such practical information as you may need.

Please watch your luggage and your purse always and everywhere, but especially at the railway stations in the vicinity of Schiphol Airport.

On Sunday, 27 August, the southern parking garage at the back of the University Library (Maliebaan) will be opened from 2 till 11.30 p.m. (access is free).


3. Registration

a. We kindly ask you to arrive not later than Sunday, 27 August, and to use the opportunity for registration offered on that same day from 3.30 till 11 p.m. in the Faculty Club of Leiden University, Rapenburg 6. There, every registered participant will receive the final version of the programme and the volume of abstracts. In addition, the Club offers an opportunity for informal contacts and for having a drink (the congress organisation is happy to offer you a first drink). Please note that the Faculty Club is opened for us only on Sunday 27 August, not during the rest of the week, and that the staff of the Club is not able to provide information on congress matters.

b. After Sunday, a very dense and crowded programme awaits us, which allows only limited opportunity for late registration; if such proves to be unavoidable, please go to the congress information table in the hall of the congress centre upon arrival. During the congress, the congress staff can be contacted by telephone at the numbers 06-27 03 14 74 (Jacques van der Vliet) and 06-27 46 38 36 (Magdalena Kuhn). (The congress centre also houses a reception desk, but this is staffed by safety officials who are blissfully ignorant of congress matters.)


4. Congress site

Please note the exact address of the congress centre:


Leiden University, Faculty of Arts (Faculteit der Letteren)

Centraal faciliteitengebouw (building no. 1175)

Cleveringaplaats 1, Witte Singel-Doelencomplex


The Faculty of Arts is situated in the city centre, at 15 minutes walking distance from the Central Station. Bus no. 43 (direction Merenwijk) stops right at the back of the building till after 6 p.m. (every 30 minutes); the bus stop is called Paterstraat (at the University Library). Taxidrivers may know the building better by the name LAK-theater. It can be recognized from some distance by the iron grills which cover part of its roofs and windows.

Rooms 011, 005 and 003, which we will have for use every day, are all on the ground floor and are clearly marked; they are provided with full technical equipment (double slide-projectors, beamer, etc.). Please note and remember that showing overhead sheets (folie) in these rather large auditoria is usually not very effective.


5. Programme

Participants will receive the final programme and the volume of abstracts upon registering on Sunday, 27 August (not earlier). The large number of papers announced makes it unavoidable to have three parallel sessions throughout the week. Scheduling such a programme is a complicated job. No programme, moreover, will ever be able to satisfy everybody, especially since there are plenty of individual wishes to take into account. You could help us a lot by avoiding discussion of the programme, by e-mail, letter or telephone, in these last weeks before the congress.

We append below a provisional list of the short papers, in an uncanonical order, giving titles as far as they were available to us by mid-July. This is not a draft programme and we publish it here mainly to whet your appetite. In addition to the short papers, there will be a presidential address by Stephen Emmel on "Coptic studies before Kircher," and ten plenary reports on recent developments in major domains of Coptic studies presented by experts in their fields, as follows:


language Gerald M. Browne (paper to be read in absentia)

literature Jürgen Horn

papyrology Peter van Minnen

art Marie-Hélène Rutschowscaya

archaeology Peter Grossmann

monasticism Ewa Wipszycka

liturgy Heinzgerd Brakmann

Gnosticism and Manichaeism Roelof van den Broek

Copto-Arabic studies Mark Swanson

Christian Nubia W_odzimierz Godlewski


6. Workshops

If you applied for participation in a workshop before June, you should by now have been contacted by the organizer(s). If not, notify the individual organizers (not the congress secretary)! It should be emphasized again that access to the workshops is limited to those who have applied for participation well in advance and who have been accepted by the organizers. For good practical reasons (size of the workshop rooms; organisation of the discussion) there can be no exceptions to this rule.


7. National Museum of Antiquities (RMO): Sorry, closed!

Regrettably, the Leiden Museum of Antiquities will still be closed during the congress (the date of re-opening has been postponed several times). Also access to the store rooms is limited. Colleagues who are working on material from the Museum collections and wish to have access to it during the congress period should contact, up until 17 August, Dr. M.J. Raven, the keeper of the Department of Egyptian antiquities (RMO fax: +31-71-5 149 941), and after 17 August, the congress secretary. Being able to cite correct inventory numbers will be extremely helpful.


8. Books

Several publishing firms will be represented during the congress, which will enable you to make contacts or to profit from a congress discount. We have, moreover, been promised the première of the late Paul van Moorsel's collected essays on Coptic art.


9. Post-congress tour

Following registration on Sunday, 27 August, in the Faculty Club, you will have the opportunity to sign up for a post-congress tour, which will take place on Saturday afternoon, 2 September, from 1 to 8.30 p.m. This tour will take you far from Leiden, to Ruinerwold, to the newly opened "Coptic Museum," a modern and dynamic museum documenting Coptic culture. This museum, the private initiative of members of the culturally very active Coptic community in Holland, seeks to reach and inform a broad, interested audience. It is situated in an ancient farmhouse in a typical corner of the Dutch countryside.

The cost of the post-congress tour is Dfl. 50,- per person and the programme includes: transport by bus from Leiden to Ruinerwold and back, free access to the Coptic Museum, and coffee. Registration is possible on Sunday only; if there is not enough interest, the tour may be cancelled.


On behalf of the Leiden committee,

Jacques van der Vliet
