Description
Egypt was an important center for the early history of Christianity, a place where centuries of tradition mixed freely with new ideas and doctrines. Coptic art--that of Christian Egypt-- celebrated the still young faith with a vigorous and lively style. The weavers of textiles particularly excelled, as these rare fragments of a Christian tunic (perhaps a burial costume) show. We feel here the simple power and energy which was at the heart of the young church, the essence of belief still free of doubt. - (PF.0349a)
