This volume presents editions of ninety-one papyri associated with the day-to-day administration of the monastery of Apollo at Bawit during the eighth century, seventy-eight of which are published here for the first time. Many of the papyri are orders issued by the head of the monastery to various subordinates, and the texts’ contents are minutely analyzed in the introduction. The majority of the texts were written in Coptic script, with a very few in Greek; the Coptic texts, however, often include a Greek word or phrase.
