Psalies Manuscript

Folio 024 (Vesro and Recto)
Showing a watos psali for 17 Thout-Nyarouz feast

  • This Manuscript contains psalies starting from Thout to the end of Tobi written in Coptic with Arabic titles.

  • It consists of 180 folios with some missed.

  • The book contains Some Pages with no title.
    It seems that some pages are lost as the Cross Adam psali (as an example) is not complete and the ending footer of some pages do not match the header of the following. Besides, the Psali of St. John the Baptist is entitled (Another Adam Psali for John the Baptist)
    "وايضاً ابصالية ادام ليوحنا المعمداني"

  • It has no signature indicating the copyist identity or the date of copying.
    Dr. Youhanna N Youssef says that it goes back to the 18th or 19th century, and it is written with iron ink reacting with the papers and carbon ink dissolving by humidity.
