Abstract :
Edition and study of a late Coptic charm against fever transmitted in two versions, one excavated at the monastery of Naqlun (Fayoum), another kept in the Institute of Oriental Manuscripts in Saint Petersburg. The text offers a striking example of the creative reworking of an ancient 'magical' genre in a Christian monastic setting.
