Medieval Coptic thinkers

Hi everyone. I have been looking into this for the last week or sol since it bugged me, and come up with some thinkers that I have had the chance to read.

I’m loving finally getting to read some of the medieval Coptic thinkers for a change. Their writings are brilliant so far, especially Ibn Kabar and Ibn Al-Assal.

Ibn Kabar is especially interesting since he is writing under the medieval sultanate and brings up martyrdom a lot. I suppose that weq forget that for the Copts it was not just the early church that suffered but constant under Rome, the Byzantines, the Muslims, the crusaders, the ottomans and now the new governments.

I thought I'd share these wish you and post more if I find them.
