Coptball is the religionball representing Egyptian Christians, also represents the Coptic Church (both Catholic and Orthodox).

History

Coptball was born when primitive Christianity came to Alexandriaball, shortly after the ascension of Jesus Christ and during the reign of the SQPRball in Egypt around 42 AD. From Alexandriaball, Christianity spread throughout Egypt. By the beginning of the 3rd century AD, the Church of Alexandria was recognized as one of Christendom's four Apostolic Sees. He agreed with the Egyptian language (Coptic), which gave rise to the Coptic Patriarchate of Alexandriaball, this lived within the Byzantine Empireball until it was conquered by the Sultanate Mamlukball and this later by the Ottoman Empireball.

The Christians Egyptballs (Copts) preserved their language (derived from the ancient Egyptian language) and religion to avoid persecution from radical Muslim Egyptballs. Under Muslim rule, Copts became second-class citizens, who paid special taxes, had little access to political power and were exempt from military service. But they were allowed to practice their religion unmolested.

Their position improved dramatically under the rule of Muhammad Ali in the early 19th century. He abolished the Jizya (a tax on non-Muslims) and allowed Egyptians Christians (Copts) to enroll in the army. In late 19th century, Coptballs started to be appointed to be judges in Egyptian courts and started earning political rights and representation in government.

Some Copts participated in the Egyptian national movement for independence and occupied many influential positions. Unfortunately for Coptball this period was short time.

Coptballs have faced discrimination after the 1952 coup d'état that transformed Egypt into a republic. Until recently, Christian Egyptballs were required to obtain presidential approval for even minor repairs in churches. Although the law was eased in 2005 by handing down the authority of approval to the governors, Copts continue to face many obstacles and restrictions in building new churches.

Today Egyptball provides Coptballs the best educational services, and Muslim and Copt Egyptballs protested together against the military regime, and both are allowed in participation in government of Egyptball and has equal rights #together_of_bringing_success
