Karlheinz Schüssler - sad news
I have heard from David Parker the sad news that Prof. Karlheinz Schüssler (Salzburg) died in a car crash last Monday. Prof. Schüssler was editor of Biblia Coptica (the effort to register systematically all of the scattered leaves of early Coptic Bible texts) and of the Journal of Coptic Studies. There are too few involved in the area of Coptic Bible, and this is a serious loss to the discipline. Prof. Schüssler contributed to the International Greek New Testament Project, and hosted the IGNTP magnificently in Salzburg. It was a privilege to get to know him then and he will be sorely missed.
