Research output: Book / ReportBook editingAcademic

Abstract

This volume opens Coptic identity and tradition to a broad range of perspectives: historical, political, sociological, anthropological, and ethno-musicological. The essays by both Coptic and non-Coptic scholars offer insights into present-day issues facing the community and their connections to relevant themes from the past, demonstrating that reexamination of the past helps strengthen modern-day Coptic life and culture.
