Paganism and Christianity in Egypt: The Religion of the Poor by David Frankfurter

"Paganism and Christianity in Egypt: The Religion of the Poor" is a book written by David Frankfurter, a historian and expert on the religious practices of late antique Egypt. The book examines the religious beliefs and practices of the lower classes of Egypt during the period of transition from paganism to Christianity.

Frankfurter looks at the ways in which the poor in Egypt interacted with and adapted to the new religion of Christianity, and how their religious practices and beliefs differed from those of the elite. He also examines the ways in which traditional religious practices and beliefs were preserved and adapted by the lower classes in the face of the spread of Christianity.

The book also covers the ways in which the religious changes in Egypt interacted with the broader society and economy, and the ways in which religious changes affected the lives of the poor in Egypt. Frankfurter also examines the ways in which the religious changes in Egypt interacted with the broader Roman Empire and how the religious changes in Egypt affected the development of Christianity in the empire.

"Paganism and Christianity in Egypt: The Religion of the Poor" is widely read by scholars and students interested in the history of late antique Egypt and the history of Christianity. It is praised for its focus on the religious practices of the lower classes in Egypt and its ability to provide a deeper understanding of the religious landscape of late antique Egypt.
