The excellent Anthony Alcock has made a translation of a short but interesting text by the Coptic abbot Shenoute (or Shenouda). The Latin title is Adversus Graecos de usura, but he titles it On labour relations and usury, and seems to question whether it can be really directed against the pagans.
Here is the translation:
I was unable to find the source text online, although it certainly used to be! This is based on two manuscripts:
- A = Codex Parisinus (BNF) Copt. 130.2, foll. 20-23.
- B = British Museum 197, fol. 1.
All very welcome as usual – thank you!
