Abstract :
Focused on the figure of Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus Christ, the so-called History of Joseph the Carpenter is one of the most renowned writings preserved in Coptic. Our article presents a couple of new Parisian fragments of this work in the Sahidic dialect of Coptic, widely regarded as the original language of the text. The study examines the testimonies mainly from a codicological and paleographical perspective.
