The first issue of the Journal of the Canadian Society for Coptic Studies contains the papers presented in the First Annual Symposium of Coptic Studies held on 29 March 2008 at the University of Toronto. The attendance to this first symposium was a witness to the need and importance of such an initiative in this city. The purpose behind this venture was to bring together individuals interested in Coptic Studies and to create awareness among academics about the richness of Coptic heritage. Hence the name given to this first meeting “Coptic Heritage Ancient and Modern” expressed the wide range of topics presented at the Symposium: papers about Late Antique Egypt to contemporary studies about the Coptic community. This Journal, lays down a foundation of academic work for Coptologists in Canada and offers a window of opportunity to future young scholars interested in this field of studies.
