This chapter examines linguistic and religious changes through an analysis of the temples of the Fayoum Oasis in Egypt during the Roman period. It reflects on the contributions that new evidence has brought to light in the last ten years to the question of the way in which Coptic arose in the Roman period and became a crucial language and script for early Christianity.

Keywords:   linguistic change, religious change, Fayoum Oasis, Egypt, Coptic studies, Roman period, early Christianity
