Abstract:
This slim paperback presents the text of a lecture (p. 7), in which Schilling, a specialist of Christian Arabic literature at the University of Jena, suggests that the Carmelite friar John of Hildesheim (d. 1375; cf. VL2, 4, cols. 638–647) could have been familiar with the Coptic Kitāb al-majāll (Book of the rolls).
