Christianity and Monasticism in Northern Egypt

This chapter discusses the life of a little-known saint, Hadid, who resided in the Nile Delta in the thirteenth century, and some aspects of the Christian demography of the northwestern part of Lower Egypt during his life. Anba Hadid was born in Sinjar on Lake Burullus and spent most of his life as a priest in the village of Nutubis al-Rumman, located north of Fuwwa on the Rashidi branch of the Nile. He died in 1286. The seemingly unremarkable character of Hadid's life and miracles suggests that there were other local saints like him during the Islamic period whose stories are not recorded.
