What is Coptic magic?

‘The Coptic Magical Papyri: Vernacular Religion in Late Roman and Early Islamic Egypt is a five-year research project (2018-2023) based at the Chair of Egyptology of the Julius Maximilian University Würzburg and funded by the Excellent Ideas programme. The team consists of Korshi Dosoo (research group leader), Edward O. D. Love, and Markéta Preininger Svobodová.’

I quote here from the project’s new website, which looks terrific! It even has a blog that will discuss its work, whose first post addresses that burning question: what is Coptic magic? Watch this space!
