# Ramanujan congruences and étale cohomology

What is a good reference for the story of congruences such as

$$\displaystyle \tau(n) \equiv \sigma(11)(n) \mod\ 691$$

with a conceptual explanation with connections to étale cohomology, etc?

Brian Conrad was writing a book on this and it was available on his web site. However, the PDF link there seems not to work any more. If it has been published that would be a modern source complementing the Swinnerton-Dyer notes. – T.. Nov 24 '10 at 17:51
@T..: Dear T.., I don't believe that Brian's book has been published (so far). – Matt E Nov 26 '10 at 4:45

The paper of Deligne, Formes modulaires et représentations $l$-adiques, available at numdam, has these things.
