Coptic Museum, {CATEGORY}

The Coptic Museum, which opened originally back in 1910, has just emerged from an extensive refurbishment The result is a far better organized, presented, and documented museum, and it's a must-see for anyone interested in the history of Egypt. This is also a museum with a mission - the intent behind the layout is to show how Coptic imagery is deeply embedded in all aspects of Egyptian life, and following the displays you can see the sun discs of ancient deities morph into iconographic halos and the capitals of Pharaonic columns transform into baptismal basins. One of the museum's most prized holdings is a manuscript collection of the Nag Hammadi library (popularly known as the Gnostic Gospels). Access to the library is restricted, but several folios, scrolls, and a sublime Book of Psalms dating from the 4th century are on display.
