About the Coptic Orthodox Church (General)






The phrase "Coptic"

The Word Coptic means Egyptian. It derives from the Greek Word Aigyptos, which originally comes from the ancient Egyptian HA-ka-ptah, which means the house of Pitah spirit. An admired divinity in Egyptian Mythology. From the Conquer of the Arabs and till this day, Coptic refers to the Christian Egyptians to differentiate them from the Muslim Egyptians.

The sons of the Faeroes

Copts are descendants of the ancient Egyptians and are defined as the modern sons of the Faeroes. They played a significant role in the first five centuries of the Christian history. Their religious background helped them to accept Christianity with eager and enjoy its serenity through meditation, and study of the Holy Scripture. In this subject we wish to shed light on the old Egyptian culture, and how it reacted to the new Christian believe.

The Coptic Language




The Coptic language is the last step of the ancient Egyptian language, which was written with hieroglyphs, hieratic and demotic types until our days. The Word Coptic is a word deriving from the Arabic Word qibt, which is contained in the Greek Word Aigyptios.

Coptic means Egyptian and also means the Egyptian language, which has been used in script with Greek letters from the second Century ac. and supplemented with 7 demotic sounds, which the Greek alphabet could not reproduce.
