IECS report 8

IECS report 8 is out now!
In this report Matija Miličić, PhD candidate at the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies of the Radboud University in Nijmegen, looks into the Coptic Orthodox Church in the Netherlands. He conducts his research as part of the ERC project Rewriting Global Orthodoxy, where he analyzes publications, practices and activities of the Coptic communities in Western Europe during the last fifty years. He explores tensions between preserving tradition and heritage, and negotiating challenges set by migration and a perceived need for modernization. Moreover, he seeks to discover how the Coptic community reinterprets its tradition while facing challenges en route to inscribing itself into local societies.
