Overview: Egyptian identity is closely tied to geography. Egyptians share a common culture and a rich history that dates to around 3150 BC. Christianity was the majority religion during the 4th to 6th centuries AD until the Muslim conquest of Egypt. Sunni Islam predominates in modern Egypt, though a sizeable Coptic Christian community remains as a distinct ethnoreligious sub-group. Egyptian Arabic is the dominant language, but Saidi Arabic is widely spoken in Upper Egypt.
