Abstract

The article treats of the veneration of Saint John the Baptist in Egypt. While for Lower
Egypt an overview of known attestations is offered, for Upper Egypt an unpublished text
relating to John the Baptist is provided which is illustrative of the local tradition. A
detailed description of the manuscript is given, followed by a parallel Sahidic-Greek text.
This is accompanied by an English translation and indications of necessary corrections to
the Greek. The article concludes with reflections on the significance of emerging factors.
