- From the time of St. Mark, the first patriarch of the Egyptian church, the Coptic patriarchs resided at Alexandria, the cradle of Egyptian Christianity. This was the first patriarchal seat in Egypt, but there were also others, depending on historical circumstances.For the decade 965-975, the patriarchal seat was at the village of Mahallat Danyal in the district of Ridah, probably with some interludes at Alexandria.The present residence is within the compound of the new Saint Mark's Cathedral at Anba Reuis, Abbasiyyah, Cairo.
