A Concise Coptic-English Lexicon

Smith R.

A Concise Coptic-English Lexicon, which began as a word list compiled by students at Fuller Theological Seminary is often regarded as the best resource for students beginning their study of Coptic. Smith’s lexicon is commonly paired with Crum’s Coptic Dictionary because of their unique relationship and their authority as studies of Coptic Christianity. The Concise Coptic-English Lexicon was originally published in 1983, compared to Crum’s work in 1939, and therefore includes additional vocabulary from the discovery of the Nag Hammadi.
