Acts of Andrew and Paul: Does anyone have access to “Orientalia”?

I need an article: can someone help me?  We may get a translation out of it, if we can get hold of the text.

The Apocryphal New Testament: A Collection of Apocryphal Christian Literature in an English Translation by J. K. Elliott makes mention of some 9th century Coptic Acts of Andrew and Paul, on p.243. The text has been published, with French translation.  Unfortunately the journal is not one I have access to:

X. Jacques, “Les deux fragments conservés des ‘Actes d’André et de Paul'”, in: Orientalia, New Series, volume 38 (1969), pages 187-213.

The Orientalia journal seems to be issued by the Pontifical Bible Institute in Rome: info here.  The 2008 volume seems to be open-access, here and here.  The article is also referenced in Schneemelcher, p.450.

Does anyone have access to this article? If so, can you let me have a copy?  A kind gentleman is willing to translate the Coptic into English, if I can supply him with the text.

UPDATE: The series is ISSN 0030-5367. Apparently the journal exists in the “ATLA Religion Database with ATLASerials” product (not the same as the more common “ATLA Religion Database”) – does anyone have access to this?

  2. That catalogue entry does describe the same journal, I think. What a pity that the item is not online. If the worst comes to the worst, I’ll drive up to Cambridge and photocopy the thing.

    The journal is not to be had in Cambridge University Library, drat it. Oxford has a copy; so does the British Library.

  4. Hi Roger

    Bound Journal is definitely in the Cambridge University Library

    Orientalia : commentarii de rebus assyro-babylonicis, arabicis, aegyptiacis, etc
