Christianity and Monasticism in Aswan and Nubia

Adel F. Sadek

American University in Cairo Press

Despite the lack of documents coming from Kom Ombo, the author concludes that Christianity started there at least in the fourth century. Several names of its bishops are mentioned in different documents and archaeological finds. The archaeological finds in Kom Ombo demonstrate liturgical activities, most probably associated with the activities of pilgrimages in nearby areas.
