The Coptic Orthodox Church
The Coptic Orthodox Church of the Oriental Orthodox Church is deep rooted with an extremely rich history and blessed with detailed traditions and rituals that are shielded by symbolism and reasoning.
The Coptic Church dates back to the first century and was established after the coming of Christ and after His Ascension.
Following the feast of the Pentecost (Descension of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles), St. Mark, one of the Apostles and one of four Evangelists, set out to Africa to spread the word of God that was given to him.
The Coptic language originates from the Ancient Egyptian language of Hieroglyphics merged with Greek. For those reasons, thanks to St. Mark and his struggles, he was able to establish churches all over Africa and specifically the first Coptic Orthodox Church being established in Alexandria, Egypt.
