Christianity and Monasticism in Northern Egypt

This chapter focuses on Butrus al-Sadamanti al-Armani, who enriched the Christian Arabic literature of Egypt later in the thirteenth century with many important works. More works are attributed to Butrus than those he actually wrote, and some works are recorded under more than one title. His works can be divided into five categories: biblical, theological, moral or ethical, spiritual works, and edifying stories. His masterpiece is a commentary on the Passion of Christ preceded by an introduction on biblical hermeneutic, al-Tashih fi alam al-Sayyid al-Masih (The Correction [or Rectification] in the Sufferings of the Lord Christ), or Tafsir alam al-Sayyid al-Masih (Interpretation of the Sufferings of the Lord Christ).

Keywords:   Butrus al-Sadamanti al-Armani, Christian Arabic literature, Christianity, monasticism
