Since 4 A.D., organised Coptic female communities have demonstrated that the ascetic has a desired, trusted and supportive function within secular society. This research seeks to revive the investigation into female monasticism, which has the contemporary Egyptian landscape witnessing a monastic revival led by generations of Coptic Zaballeen women. This proposal seeks to choreograph a thematic and architectural porosity in convents relative to the urban fabric within which they participate.
