Jason D. BeDuhn (Project Director: November 2008 to June 2013)
Digital Enhancement, Editing, Translation, and Analysis of the "Dublin Kephalaia"

Preparation for publication of an English translation of the Dublin Kephalaia, a 4th century Coptic codex; and a separate volume with commentaries on the codex.

Applying techniques of digital image enhancement developed for this project with the Imaging Lab of the Bilby Research Center of Northern Arizona University, the project team will transcribe, edit, and translate the "Dublin Kephalaia," a previously unreadable 4th century Coptic codex produced by the Manichaean religious community, which promises to provide a major breakthrough in our knowledge of religious pluralism and interaction in pre-Islamic Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.
