Christianity and Monasticism in Upper Egypt Nag Hammadi - Esna

Full Product Description

This title deals with the new studies in the development and spread of early Christianity in southern Egypt. Christianity and monasticism have flourished in Upper (southern) Egypt from as early as the fourth century until the present day. The contributors to this volume, international specialists in Coptology from around the world, examine various aspects of Coptic civilization along the Nile Valley from Nag Hammadi (associated with the famous discovery of Gnostic papyri) through Luxor and Coptos and south to Esna over the past seventeen hundred years, looking at Coptic religious history, tradition, language, heritage, and material culture in the region through texts, art, architecture, and archaeology. This important volume provides for the first time an up-to-date, comprehensive treatment of Christianity and monasticism in the Nile Valley south of Sohag.
