Description
 
The Copts, the native Christian community of Egypt, have a culture, a language and a church with ancient roots.

Having survived Roman persecution and Byzantine rule, they have co-existed with Islam for fourteen centuries.

This program visits two of the oldest desert monasteries in Egypt to observe religious practices and a way of life that have changed remarkably little since the beginnings of Coptic Christianity.

It also explores the religionís iconography and the art, artifacts and textiles it has inspired.
