The nineteen studies in this volume, produced over the last fifteen years, cover three areas in Christian Egypt's long and enduring history. First are eight papers dealing with record-keeping in both of the Christian Egyptian culture-carrying languages of late antiquity, Coptic and Greek, showing how these languages were used pragmatically and interactively to embody everyday transactions and messages. Then come five studies of a major sixth-century thinker and theologian, John Philoponus, who contributed greatly to the self-definition of the non-Chalcedonian Egyptian church and employed both classical philosophy and biblical exegesis to provide his fellow Miaphysites with needed intellectual tools. Finally there are six articles ranging from sixth-century philosophy, poetry, and liturgy to the cultural productions of Egyptian Christians living under Muslim rule, including how they sought to memorialize traditions and deal with internal conflict.
