The Church in the Square: Negotiations of Religion and Revolution at an Evangelical Church in Cairo

Cairo Papers Vol. 33, No. 3 Anna Jeannine Dowell

A study of Egyptian youth, religion, and identity during the 2011 Revolution

In the wake of the 25 January 2011 popular uprisings, youth and leaders from the Kasr el Dobara Evangelical Church, the largest Protestant congregation in the Middle East, situated just behind Tahrir Square embarked on new, unpredictable political projects. This ethnography seeks to elucidate the ways that youth and leaders utilized religious imagery and discourse and relational networks in order to carve out a place in the Egyptian public sphere regarding public religion, national belonging, and the ideal citizen.
