Coptic Orthodox Church History
Written by Fr. Marcos A. Marcos   
Wednesday, 15 August 2007

Name And Origin:

The Copts are the original Egyptians, and the word "Copt" itself is derived from the Greek word "Aegyptus" which means Egypt. The Copts are the descendants of the ancient Egyptians. They are considered one of the most anthropologically pure races in the world.

The Coptic Era:

When people think of Egypt, they usually think of ancient Egypt with its pyramids. Then they jump over to the Islamic period represented by the forest of minarets which a person sees in Cairo today. However, in between these two extremes, there is a modest bridge. This bridge does not pass over a valley of darkness where the Copts resided in complete isolation. On the contrary, this era is considered one of the luminous periods in the national and ecclesiastical history of Egypt.

Strictly speaking, the purely Coptic Christian period extends for about six centuries at the dawn of the Christian era. In Egyptian history, this is a tiny fraction but not at all insignificant. From the cultural standpoint, that short span was epoch-making in the development of Egyptian ideas and ideals. Indeed it stands for what is rightly called "Coptic Civilization".

About St. Mina and St. Abanoub Coptic Orthodox Church

Coptic families in Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus, since their immigration to the United States and settlement in Southern Ohio, were inspired to organize and establish a Coptic church in the region. For over 20 years, they have invited Coptic priests from other cities of the United States to celebrate the Divine Liturgy on a regular basis to fulfill their spiritual needs. The Liturgy was conducted in local churches once a month.
