The Emergence of the Modern Coptic Papacy (Hardcover): Magdi Guirguis, Nelly Doorn-Harder The Emergence of the Modern Coptic Papacy (Hardcover)

This third and final volume of The Popes of Egypt spans the five centuries from the arrival of the Ottomans in 1517 to the present era. Hardly any scholarly work has been written about the Copts during the Ottoman Period. Using court, financial, and building records, as well as archives from the Coptic Orthodox Patriarchate and monasteries, Magdi Guirguis has reconstructed the authority of the popes and the organization of the Coptic community during this time. He reveals that the popes held complete authority over their flock at the beginning of Ottoman rule, deciding over questions ranging from marriage and concubines to civil disputes. As the fortunes of Coptic notables rose, they gradually took over the pope's role and it was not until the time of Muhammad Ali that the popes regained their former authority.
With the dawning of the modern era in the nineteenth century, the leadership style of the Coptic popes necessarily changed drastically. As Egypt's social, political, and religious landscape underwent dramatic changes, the Coptic Church experienced a virtual renaissance, and expanded from a local to a global institution. In the second part of the book, Nelly van Doorn-Harder addresses the political, religious, and cultural issues faced by the patriarchs that led the Coptic community into the twenty-first century.

Abdel Latif El-Menawy met and interviewed late Pope Shnouda, the third Patriarch of Egypt many times during his rule. Throughout his career in journalism he was constantly in touch with leaders of the Coptic Society in Egypt. He had unparalleled access to developments of the various crises unravelling in the streets of Egypt as a result to confrontation between religion and politics. Coptic Cairo explains: how Christianity became deeply rooted in Egypt to the extent that Islam was never able to overcome, leading to an uneasy relationship between the two faiths; the main features of the Coptic Church that differ from its Western sister; and how certain cases of conversion from one religion to the other captured the attention of the whole world because of society's reaction to them. It will give accounts, never published before, of direct confrontations between Late Pope Shnouda and both Presidents Late Anwar Sadat and former President Hosni Mubarak. Abdel Latif also reveals the role the Coptic Church has played in the recent uprising in Egypt
