From western Thebes during the 7th century survives the largest body of material connected with Coptic education from any region in Egypt. This seminar will present the material and its distribution, addressing where education took place and the nature of the “curriculum”. Most learners – and teachers – are anonymous in the surviving record. There are, however, a few exceptions, and a case study will be presented on one individual who signed his exercises, Pleine, whose texts are preserved among the ostraca in Columbia University (to appear in a volume co-authored with Raffaella Cribiore).
