For our inaugural lecture of the 2016 – 2017 season, we are visited by a member of the Coptic Heritage Society of Alberta (CHSA, www.albertacoptic.org ) who is going to talk to our chapter about the Coptic Period in Egypt (42 CE – 640 CE). Through their lecture, the audience will learn about Coptic history and influences of the various civilizations that ruled Egypt after the decline of the ancient Egyptian dynasties; including the Hellenistic, Roman , Byzantine , Persian and Islamic phases.
