  • Coptic religious culture: theology, monasticism, spirituality, liturgy and music
  • the Coptic language, linguistic expressions of the Coptic heritage and literary production in Greek, Coptic and Arabic .

About the Author:

Lois M. Farag is Associate Professor of Early Church History at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. Her books include St. Cyril of Alexandria, A New Testament Exegete (Gorgias Press, 2007) and Balance of the Heart: Desert Spirituality for Twenty-First Century Christians (Cascade Books, 2012).

Review:

"The Coptic Christian Heritage fills an urgent need for better information about and understanding of the history, culture, and spirituality of Coptic Christians. Lois Farag and her colleagues have created an invaluable resource for teachers, students, researchers, and general readers. By approaching Coptic Christianity without either doctrinal prejudice or Euro-centrism, this volume brings to life one of Christianity’s oldest and richest traditions."

- David Brakke, Ohio State University, USA

"This carefully designed collection of essays offers a timely survey of Coptic Christian Egypt from its origins to the uprising of January 2011. Readers embark on a journey through the history of the church and its religious, literary, and artistic culture. Written by scholars from within the tradition, the volume furnishes a much needed, sympathetic introduction to an important and often overlooked branch of Christianity."

- James E. Goehring, University of Mary Washington, USA
