About Anba Epiphanius

Anba Epiphanius (June 27, 1954 – July 29, 2018) (Coptic: Ⲁⲃⲃⲁ ⲉⲡⲓⲫⲁⲛⲓⲟⲥ; Arabic: الأنبا أبيفانيوس‎) was an Egyptian Coptic Orthodox Church bishop. He was appointed as the bishop and abbot of the Monastery of St. Macarius in 2013, a position he held until his death on July 29, 2018.


As of 2013 Anba Epiphanius, who had been a member of the brotherhood since 1984, was appointed as the bishop and abbot of the Monastery of St. Macarius in 2013; he was 64 years old when he died in 2018.

The Coptic Church published a statement to say that Pope Tawadros “mourned in Anba Epiphanius a true monk whose life was steeped in meekness and humbleness; also a scholar who possessed a wealth of knowledge that fruited research and publications in various branches of ecclesiastical studies. The Pope prayed for peace for his soul, and comfort for the St Macarius monk assembly as well as all who loved the late Abbot He was simple in his clothes, his house and his food. Bishop Epiphanius was very simple and he preferred to sit in the last rows".

Pope Tawadros would also consult the abbot due to his extensive knowledge and authorship. The abbot had attended 20 conferences in five years with the Pope's blessing.
