HISTORY of THE COPTIC CROSS
The Coptic Church is the Christian church of Egypt, established by Mark in the 1st century (around 60 A.D.). The church has dioceses elsewhere in Africa and the Near East. The early Gnostics and Copts adapted the Egyptian Ankh Cross as the basis of its emblem. The Coptic Cross takes many forms, usually a modification of the Ankh Cross, the Latin Cross, the Celtic Cross, or the Greek Cross. These elements were introduced through changes in the region's history.
