Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
The Greek “Aigýptios” (the Greek term for the Egyptian indigenous peoples) turned into the Sahidic “kuptaion”, which, in turn became the Arabic “qubt”, the New Latin “Coptus” and English “Copt”.
Coptic Christianity forms between 10-20% of the population of Egypt and are the largest Christian denomination of that country (as well as neighbouring Syria and Libya). It is said to date back to Saint Mark’s introduction of Christianity in Alexandria.
