United Copts

United Copts are those who, since 1732, have acknowledged the authority of the pope. They are of two rites — the Egyptian, and the Ethiopic or Abyssinian-and in Egypt they number 12,000. In 1855 the pope appointed one of their priests vicar apostolic and bishop in partibus. SEE COPTS.
