The last fifty years have seen something of a downturn in the number of studies undertaken concerning the Coptic biblical text. Recognizing the lack of attention the Coptic biblical text has received, and also in light of the growing manuscript evidence in the various Coptic dialects, many scholars have begun to call for new studies in the Coptic biblical text, especially the New Testament. This study takes a first step in the direction toward a new critical edition of the Pauline corpus by investigating anew the three most complete manuscripts of Romans known to the scholarly world.
