Papyrology

Papyrology

Papyrological research has been carried out at Macquarie since the early 1970s under a variety of research programs. The Museum of Ancient Cultures holds the largest collection of papyri, parchment, and ostraca in the Southern Hemisphere, and the Macquarie Papyri Research and Development Committee oversees ongoing work publishing the collection. A number of research projects within the ACRC focus on papyrological evidence to study aspects of Graeco-Roman and late antique Egypt including the Greek language, monasticism, Coptic script, and Early Christianity in Egypt.
