Written by Dr. Ahmed Amin, Professor of Archaeology at Fayoum University, the book is a part of the Coptic Notebooks series published by the Center for Coptic Studies as the first scientific series to be published in Arabic in this field for specialists and non-specialists alike.

Numerous professors and faculty members at the University competed for the award with their publications.
