Christianity and Monasticism in Aswan and Nubia

Nashaat Mekhaiel

American University in Cairo Press

The bishops of Aswan and the surrounding area were consecrated with the name Hadra and Hadra is venerated in the liturgy of the Coptic Church throughout Egypt. The liturgical compilations of the Copts, known as the Difnar, contains many hymns that are worthy of close investigation. The author describes the picture of Hadra that is drawn in the Difnar, and what aspects are placed in the foreground to present the person of Hadra to the believers.
