CYRIL II Patriarch (67th, 1078-1092) - Coptic Wiki

II (?-1092). Patriarch (67th, 1078-1092)

Like his predecessor , II (before his consecration, the monk Jirja of the Monastery of St. Macarius) occupies a place in the history of Copto-Arabic literature both as a subject of an Arabic-language by Mawhub ibn Mansur ibn Mufarrij in the History of the Patriarchs, and as an author (in 1086) of a set of Arabic- language canons. Cyril’s canons, 34 in number, deal primarily with the pastoral responsibilities of bishops. They were incorporated into the 14th-century canonical collection of the monk Maqara.
