Item Description...
Christianity began in the large and fertile Fayoum oasis of Egypt's Western Desert as early as the third century, and its presence has endured to the present day. This volume, which constitutes a tribute tothe scholarly work of the father of modern Coptology, Martin Krause, contains contributions on various aspects of Coptic civilization in Egypt's largest oasis over the past eighteen hundred years. The contributors are all international specialists in Coptology, from Australia, the Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, and the United States. A number of the studies included in this volume deal with recent archaeological discoveries at Deir al-Banat, the early Christian graves in the necropolis at the eastern edge of the Fayoum, and the monastic settlements and medieval Coptic cemetery at Naqlun. Others provide thorough examinations of archaeological sites at Karanis, Tebtunis, and Naqlun. Contributions cover the rich Christian literary heritage in Greek, Coptic, and Arabic, while art historians touch on the famous Fayoum portraits and their influence on the production of Coptic icons, as well as on the medieval wall paintings at Naqlun and in textiles, metal objects, and basketry from the region. This important volume provides for the first time an up-to-date, comprehensive treatment of Christianity and monasticism in the Fayoum Oasis.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Brief and Lucid History of the Sphinx  May 20, 2005
The authors gives a brief overview of the monument and the history of the Great Sphinx, taking great pains to emphasize it's place in currently accepted Egyptology. I would have enjoyed a more in-depth approach, but with the paperback being a bilingual document with many beautiful illustrations, I think the authors still wrote a satisfactory text for the book. My only nitpick is the lack of English captions for the illustrations in the rear/ Arabic half of the book (and vice-versa for the English half in the front).
