Coptic Life in Egypt

Claudia Yvonne Wiens

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

While a number of photographic books on Egypt>'s Christians have concentrated on the artistic and architectural heritage of the Copts, Coptic Life in Egypt focuses on the religious traditions and social life of the ordinary people, revealing a little-known side of the lived religion of a Christian community largely unfamiliar to the Western world.
