The spread of Christianity encountered opposition in Egypt from Gnosticism and the cult of Serapis. It spread slowly to other parts of Egypt. The need arose to provide the converts with scriptures. This led to the emergence of Coptic, the Ancient Egyptian language written using Greek letters dating from the early 4th Century.
