This book is the first monograph to examine the religious beliefs and traditions of Christians in Ottoman Egypt and to reconstruct the daily lives of this community in the context of the surrounding culture. More broadly, this study reveals Ottoman society's diversity by examining the intimate interaction between Muslim and Christian practice, and between the Muslim majority and ethno-religious minorities generally.
