This chapter presents the results of an examination of a set of four Sahidic homilies attributed to Athanasius of Alexandria to explain how he was seen among Copts after his death, and why he was seen in this particular way. The manuscripts which contain these sermons belong to the famous find of al-Hamuli and are now kept at the Pierpont Morgan Library and Museum in New York. The four homilies are entitled “On Michael and Gabriel,” “On Murder and Greed and on Michael, the Archangel,” “On Luke 11:5–9,” and “On Pentecost.”

Keywords:   Sahidic manuscripts, St. Athanasius, Christianity, monasticism, Hamuli Collection, homily, sermons
