For the history of this text, and the relations between the different developpments that can be found , please have a look at Johannes den Heijer, “Apologetic Elements in Coptic-Arabic Historiography …,” in Christian Arabic Apologetics during the Abbasid Period (750-1258), that can be read here :
Thank you so much, Albocicade – that’s really useful!
Thank you for giving this reference to Christian Arabic Apologetics…”
I got the PDF version of this book to read. It is introducing me to a whole area of apologetics that I did not know about.
This isn’t really apologetics, actually… it’s the raw stuff of history.
