A few units ago, we studied the Greek and Russian Orthodox Christians of the Byzantine Empire -- recall our cursory study of Justinian, Theodora, Yaroslav the Wise, and many more. There are, however, a diversity of other Orthodox Christians who still practice this Eastern faith today. One of them is the Coptic Christians of Egypt. Last week, CBS News' 60 Minutes produced a general overview of who the Copts were and who they are today, post-Arab Spring.
I'm back home in Philadelphia this weekend. I wanted to show you some more icons that my parents purchased and hung up around the house. These icons are Coptic--made by Christian Egyptians. Is there anything you notice that reminds you of some of the stuff we've learned?
I'll see you all on Monday!
