Among the Copts
Beliefs and Practices

John H. Watson

The Revd Dr John Waston has travelled extensively, exploring Christianity throughout the world, and lectures at home and abroad. He works as an Assistant Priest in a Dorset village, writes the fortnightly Coptophile Column for Cairo’s Watani (the leading Christian newspaper in the Middle East), and contributes regularly to Kirche im Dialog in Mannheim, Germany.

 

Among the Copts brings the reader face to face with the Christians of Egypt, offering a comprehensive presentation of the life and thought of the Coptic Orthodox Church at the turn of the millennium. The book explores all the important themes of the Copts from the earliest moments of Christian history to the present day, achieving an impressive balance between a critical re-examination of Coptic history and original research. The work includes sections on history, liturgy, art, theology, monasticism, politics, mission and martyrdom.
