PROFESSOR PHIL BOOTH AND HIS WRITINGS ON THE CHRONICLE OF JOHN OF NIKIU

February 16, 2022

Professor Phil Booth is A. G. Leventis Associate Professor in Eastern Christianity, St Peter’s College, Faculty of Theology and Religion, University of Oxford. He is interested in ecclesiastical history, in particularly the history of eastern Christianity in the eastern Roman empire. This has naturally made him come to face with the Copts and their history in that period. He has written extensively. Recently he joined the Universität Hamburg’s project to produce a critical edition of the Chronicle of John of Nikiu, thereby joining Dr. Daria Elagina.

Three of his important papers/chapters in books are:

The Muslim Conquest of Egypt Reconsidered

The Last Years of Cyrus, Patriarch of Alexandria (†642)

Shades of Blues and Greens in the Chronicle of John of Nikiou
