Saint Paul the First Hermit

edited December 1969 in Coptic Orthodox Church
Can somebody please transliterate the Coptic name of this saint?

Ⲁⲃⲃⲁ Ⲡⲁⲩⲗⲉ

I know the first part is Abba, what is the second part transliterated into English?

(My Coptic is almost non-existent, but I'd like to change that).

Peace and Grace,

    I can't see the Coptic text, but if the subject line is any indication, then I assume what you wrote is Abba Pavly, which would translate as Abba (Father) Paul in English.
  • Κηφᾶς,

    thank you for the information. Yes, it was St. Paul of Thebes whose name in Coptic I was looking for. So, Abba Pavly it is! :)

    God bless,
  • Or Abba Bawla in the Old Bohairic pronunciation.
