This icon of the resurrected Christ comes from the Coptic Encyclopedia. Coptic Christianity is one of the oldest forms of the faith. I post it here in honor of the contemporary unforeseen explosion of resurrected hope in Egypt.
In recent days, the new Egypt has seen tensions between the Coptic minority and some Islamists. Other members of the Muslim majority, including the young people who touched off the January 25 revolution and the Muslim Brotherhood, have opposed demonstrations against a Coptic regional governor.
