Christianity and Monasticism in Northern Egypt

Egyptian texts concerning Apa Mina have came down to us in Sahidic and Arabic as hagiographic texts and in Bohairic mostly as liturgical texts. This chapter deals primarily with the Arabic text of the Miracles of Apa Mina as found in manuscript ML.MS.166 in the manuscript collection of St. Shenouda the Archimandrite Coptic Society in Los Angeles, and to a lesser extent with that of a digital copy of a manuscript brought to the Society in 2008 from Mar Mina Monastery in Maryut. It is catalogued as Ms.Mar.Mena.2 in the collection. The research on this text is still in its preliminary stages.
