Abstract :
The original editor of this papyrus did not publish the Coptic text on the ↕ side of the fragment. One might expect the Greek liturgical text on the → side to have been written on the reverse of a reused document. However, inspection of the remaining Coptic reveals that it too fits well in a liturgical context, possibly that of the consecration of a church. I hypothesize that, given the existence of bilingual liturgies, P.Berl.Sarisch. 7 might have come from an eight-century codex containing texts from the reconsecration of a Chalcedonian Egyptian church to Monophysite use.
