The Coptic Orthodox Church is the Orthodox Christian Church of Egypt. Founded by one of the four gospel writers, Saint Mark the Evangelist, the Coptic Church is one of the oldest Christian churches in the world. Alexandria served as one of the major centers of Christianity in the early years of the church. The Coptic Church has produced countless saints, martyrs, teachers, and clergy whose lives and writings continue to influence Christendom today.
