From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Egypt was one of the first countries to know Christianity, with Saint Mark the Evangelist bringing Christianity to the country [1] around 55 AD. [2]

The Egyptian Christians, also known as the Copts, have produced thousands of saints, many of whom are recognised simultaneously in the Oriental Orthodox Churches, the Eastern Orthodox Churches, and the Catholic Church.

The following is not meant to be a complete list of Coptic (Egyptian) saints, rather a mere collection.
