A History Of The Mass And Its Ceremonies In The Eastern And Western Church -Rev John O'Brien A.M.

All that we know, of the Coptic Missal is that it is printed throughout in the ancient Coptic language, and that its rubrics are in the native Arabic, the language spoken by the people; for, as Dr. Neale very justly remarks, hardly three persons can be found in all Cairo (the headquarters of the Copts) who can speak the Coptic of the Missal, not excepting even the clergy, and hence the necessity of having the rubrics printed in the vernacular.
