Christians in Egypt

Full Product Description

Christians in the Middle East have come under increasing pressure in recent years with the rise of radical Islam. Nowhere is this truer than Egypt, where the large Coptic Christian community has traditionally played an important role in the country's history and politics. This book examines Christian responses to sectarian pressures in two contexts: nationally as Church leaders deal with Egyptian presidents and locally as a community of poor Christians cope in a mostly-Muslim quarter of Cairo. This intensive study, based on the author's five years of research in Bulaq, looks at existential questions surrounding the role of religion in poor communities. The book concludes with a review of strategies Egyptian Christians used to improve their minority status, showing that although expressed differently both Church leaders and members of the Bulaq community ultimately worked toward similar goals. The study suggests that under the al-Sisi Government, Christians may be emerging into a more active period after a relative quiescence before the events of the 2011 Uprising.

Christians in Egypt by Andrea B. Rugh was published by Palgrave Macmillan in November 2015. The ISBN for Christians in Egypt is 9781137568687.
