by Joel Elowsky

The Arabic Papyrology Database (APD) is a unique resource which makes a wealth of historical documents written in Arabic freely available online. A number of texts from Egypt written from 7th to 16th century are available online.We invite you to check out their website by following this link. The work is being carried on by the Ludwig Maximillian University in Munich, funded by the Mellon Foundation. Many of these documents date as far back as to the early years of Islam.
