Coptic Christology in Practice forges a new path in the study of ancient and medieval Christology. Employing a range of interdisciplinary methods derived from the fields of social history, discourse theory, ritual studies, and the visual arts, Stephen J. Davis demonstrates how Christian identity in Egypt was shaped by a set of replicable 'christological practices'. He thus enables readers to trace the fascinating lines of the Coptic church's theological and cultural transition from late antiquity to Dar al-Islam.
