This chapter discusses changes in spiritual and religious practices after the 1960s through stories of Mariophanies in post-1970s Egypt. It studies ethnic strife in the framework of modern scripturalist concepts of religion and a modernist concept of truth. Such changes have affected nation, religion, concepts of religious truth, and authenticity. They have also fostered ethnonationalism, violence, and exclusion at the expense of egalitarianism and civil rights.

Keywords:   civil rights, Copts, ethnonationalism, exclusion, identity, Islamism, modernity, Muslims, religion, violence
