Description

Christianity and monasticism have long flourished in the northern part of Upper Egypt and in the Nile Delta, from Beni Suef to the Mediterranean coast.

The contributors to this volume, international specialists in Coptology from around the world, examine various aspects of Coptic civilization in northern Egypt over the past two millennia.

The studies explore Coptic art and archaeology, architecture, language, and literature.

The artistic heritage of monastic sites in the region is highlighted, attesting to their important legacies.
