Midan Mounira Conference

From Coptic to Hieroglyphs: In the shadow of Champollion, the Coptic priest Youhanna Chiftichi

Ashraf Sadek, coptologist and Egyptologist

As part of the bicentenary of the deciphering of hieroglyphs, Professor Ashraf Sadek evokes the most important phase of this journey: the teaching of the Coptic language brought to Champollion by Father Youhanna El-Chiftichi. Knowledge of this language allowed Champollion to retrace the meaning of the hieroglyphs.
