Introduction: Study Questions and the History of Christianity in Egypt
From the start of anthropology, the discipline was interested in religion. But taking their cues from archaeologists, anthropologists’ first efforts were to catalogue religious artifacts so they could be used to compare and contrast societies and perhaps discover connections between them. At the time, religious artifacts were not thought to have much power in explaining how people coped with everyday living. Rather, they weakly reflected human ways of explaining the unexplainable while economic and political systems were far more determinative in shaping societies.
