Fascinating old Coptic manuscripts document.

While I cant read Coptic, the preface and notes of this book were fascinating. They give some fascinating insights on how the Copts look at their theology and also insights on biblical texts, patristic texts, liturgical texts, letters and lists/accounts. Do scroll to the end of the PDF to see the photographs of the papyri with the writing. Can you imagine reading something like this which was written by one of our scribe ancestors? (or is this just a severe case of logophilia on my part?)
