The historical narrative of Coptic Egypt under the Fatimids, Ayyubids, and Bahri Mamluks forms the base of this chapter. The chapter discusses the definitive decline in size and fortune of Mamluk during the mid-fourteenth century. Additionally, several subject areas representing politics and religion used to key formation, negotiation, and defense in the shifting boundaries of medieval Coptic identity are presented. Different analysis establishes each section here such as the analysis in the earliest Muslim garrisons of the conquests. Moreover, the Fatimid dynasty, the Ayyubids, and the Mamluks are examined in detail.
