Coptic Christology in Practice by Stephen J. Davis

Book Description

Coptic Christology in Practice forges a new path in the study of ancient and medieval Christology. Employing a range of interdisciplinary methods derived from the fields of social history, discourse theory, ritual studies, and the visual arts, Stephen J. Davis demonstrates how Christian identity in Egypt was shaped by a set of replicable 'christological practices'. He thus enables readers to trace the fascinating lines of the Coptic church's theological and cultural transition from late antiquity to Dar al-Islam.

Christ Child by Stephen J. Davis Christ Child, Hardback (June 2014)

Little is known about the early childhood of Jesus Christ. But in the decades after his death, stories began circulating about his origins. How would early readers have made sense of this young Jesus? This book draws on theories about how human communities construe the past to answer this question.

Cult of Saint Thecla by Stephen J. Davis Cult of Saint Thecla, Paperback (October 2008)

Thecla, a disciple of the apostle Paul, became perhaps the most celebrated female saint and 'martyr' in the early church. Bringing together literary, artistic, and archaeological evidence, the author shows how the cult of Saint Thecla was especially popular among early Christian women.

Early Coptic Papacy by Stephen J. Davis Early Coptic Papacy, Hardback (November 2004)

The Coptic presiding bishops have been accorded the title of pope since the third century AD. This study of the popes of Egypt covers the history of the Alexandrian patriarchate from its origins to the present-day leadership of Pope Shenouda III.
