Homiletica in the Pierpont Morgan Library is the first volume in a collaborative effort to edit and translate what has remained unpublished of the Coptic literary texts kept at the Pierpont Morgan Library in mid-town Manhattan, New York City. The showpiece of the Morgan collection is a group of some fifty parchment codices acquired in 1911 in Paris for Pierpont Morgan, the American financier and philanthropist, and discovered in 1910 on the site of an ancient monastery near present-day Hamuli in the Faiyum. The eminent Coptologist Walter Ewing Crum called them "the largest and, in some ways, the most important of extant collections, ... a body of texts unparalleled for completeness, if not for variety.
