The traditional Greek Eucharistic Liturgy of the Church of Alexandria, formerly used by the Egyptian Melchites. Behind the various forms lies a primitive local Egyptian text in which the great intercessory prayer stood before the Sanctus and there was no Benedictus at the end of the Sanctus. Forms in Coptic and Ethiopic are still used in the Coptic and Ethiopian Churches.
