    Egypt is iden­ti­fied in the Bible as the place of refuge that the Holy Fam­ily sought in its flight from Judea: The Egypt­ian Church is tra­di­tion­ally be­lieved to be founded by St Mark at around AD 42, re­gards it­self as the sub­ject of many prophe­cies in the Old Tes­ta­ment. Isa­iahthe prophet, in Chap­ter 19, Verse 19 says "In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pil­lar to the LORD at its border." The first Chris­tians in Egypt were com...

    Coptic Language in the Church

    The cop­tic lan­guage is a uni­ver­sal lan­guage used in any church in any coun­try. It is de­rived from an­cient Egypt­ian and Greek let­ters. Many of the hymns used in the liturgy are done in Cop­tic that has been passed down fro thou­sands of years. The lan­guage is used to be pre­served and not com­pletely for­got­ten after the Arab in­va­sion of Egypt abol­ished the use of the lan­guage and brought in Ara­bic in­stead. Ex­am­ples of these hymns are Epooro,Ekesmar'oot,Tai Shori, and many...

    On 17 March 2012, the Cop­tic Or­tho­dox Pope, Pope Shenouda III died, leav­ing many Copts mourn­ing and wor­ry­ing as ten­sions rose with Mus­lims. Pope Shenouda III con­stantly met with Mus­lim lead­ers in order to cre­ate peace. Many were wor­ried about Mus­lims con­trol­ling Egypt as the Mus­lim Broth­er­hoodwon 70% of the par­lia­men­tary elections. On 4 No­vem­ber 2012, Bishop Tawadros was cho­sen as the 118th Pope. In a rit­ual filled with prayer, chants and in­cense at Ab­basiyacathe­dral in Cairo, the 60-year-old bishop's name was picked by a blind­folded child from a glass bowl in which the names of two other can­di­dates had also been placed. The en­throne­ment was sched­uled on 18 No­vem­ber 2012. In 1959, the Ethiopian Or­tho­dox Tewa­hedo Church was granted its first own Pa­tri­arch by Pope Cyril VI. Fur­ther­more, the Er­itrean Or­tho­dox Tewa­hedo Church sim­i­larly be­came in­de­pen­dent of the Ethiopian Or­tho­dox Tewa­hedo Church in 1994, when four bish­ops were c...

    There are about 20 mil­lion Cop­tic Or­tho­dox Chris­tians in the world. Be­tween 15 and 18 mil­lion of them are found in Egypt under the ju­ris­dic­tion of the Cop­tic Or­tho­dox Church of Alexandria. Since Egypt does not have an of­fi­cial gov­ern­ment cen­sus on re­li­gion, es­ti­mates of the size of Egypt's Chris­t­ian pop­u­la­tion vary from the es­ti­mated low pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ment fig­ures of 6 to 7 mil­lion to the 12 mil­lion re­ported by some Chris­t­ian lead­ers in 2008. The ac­tual num­bers may be in the 15 to 18 mil­lion range, out of an Egypt­ian pop­u­la­tion of more than 90 million. How­ever, in 2011, the Pew Re­search Cen­ter an­nounced that Copts in Egypt con­sti­tute 4.5% of the pop­u­la­tion, while the Catholic Holy See puts Copts at 6 to 8%. Then in 2017 gov­ern­ment owned news Al Ahram es­ti­mated the per­cent­age of Copts at 10 to 15%. How­ever, in 2012 after the Egypt­ian rev­o­lu­tion the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood was draft­ing new con­sti­tu­tion then Ma­jor-G...

    While Copts have cited in­stances of per­se­cu­tion through­out their his­tory, Human Rights Watch has noted "grow­ing re­li­gious in­tol­er­ance" and sec­tar­ian vi­o­lence against Cop­tic Chris­tians in re­cent years, and a fail­ure by the Egypt­ian gov­ern­ment to ef­fec­tively in­ves­ti­gate prop­erly and pros­e­cute those responsible. Over a hun­dred Egypt­ian copts have been killed in sec­tar­ian clashes from 2011 to 2017, and many homes and busi­nesses de­stroyed. In just one province (Minya), 77 cases of sec­tar­ian at­tacks on Copts be­tween 2011 and 2016 have been doc­u­mented by the Egypt­ian Ini­tia­tive for Per­sonal Rights.The ab­duc­tion and dis­ap­pear­ance of Cop­tic Chris­t­ian women and girls also re­mains a se­ri­ous on­go­ing problem.

    Be­sides Egypt, the Church of Alexan­dria has ju­ris­dic­tion over Pen­tapo­lis, Libya, Nubia, Sudan, Ethiopia, Er­itreaand all Africa. Both the Pa­tri­ar­chate of Addis Ababa and all Ethiopia, and the Pa­tri­ar­chate of As­mara and all Er­itrea do ac­knowl­edge the su­premacy of honor and dig­nity of the Pope and Pa­tri­arch of Alexan­driaon the basis that both Pa­tri­ar­chates were es­tab­lished by the Throne of Alexan­dria and that they have their roots in the Apos­tolic Church of Alexan­dria, and ac­knowl­edge that Saint Mark the Apos­tlic is the founder of their Churches through the her­itage and Apos­tolic evan­ge­liza­tion of the Fa­thers of Alexan­dria. In other words, the Pa­tri­ar­chates of Ethiopia and Er­itrea are daugh­ter Churches of the Holy Apos­tolic Pa­tri­ar­chate of Alexan­dria. In ad­di­tion to the above, the coun­tries of Uganda, Kenya, Tan­za­nia, Zam­bia, Zim­babwe, the Congo, Cameroon, Nige­ria, Ghana, Botswana, Malawi, An­gola, Namibia and South Africa are...

    Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church

    Ethiopia re­ceived Chris­tian­ity next to Jerusalem, through Jesus's own apos­tle, only a year after Jesus was cru­ci­fied (Acts 8: 26–39). Chris­tian­ity be­came a na­tional re­li­gion of Ethiopia, under the do­min­ion of the Church of Alexan­dria, in the 4th cen­tury. The first bishop of Ethiopia, Saint Fru­men­tius, was con­se­crated as Bishop of Axum by Pope Athana­sius of Alexan­dria in AD 328. From then on, until 1959, the Pope of Alexan­dria, as Pa­tri­arch of All Africa, al­ways named...

In 1994, Pope Shenouda or­dained Abune Philli­pos as first Arch­bishop of Er­itrea. The Er­itrean Or­tho­dox Tewa­hedo Church ob­tained au­to­cephaly on 7 May 1998, and Abune Philli­pos was sub­se­quently con­se­crated as first Pa­tri­arch of Er­itrea.

    Historical evolution of the ecclesiastical title

    The pa­tri­arch of Alexan­dria was orig­i­nally known merely as bishop of Alexan­dria. How­ever, this title con­tin­ued to evolve as the Church grew under Theophilus and his nephew and suc­ces­sor Cyril (a.d.376–444), and es­pe­cially in the 5th cen­tury when the Church de­vel­oped its hi­er­ar­chy. The bishop of Alexan­dria, being the suc­ces­sor of the first bishop in Roman Egypt con­se­crated by Saint Mark, was hon­ored by the other bish­ops as first among equals primus inter pares. Under...
