    “Abu Sargah, or St. Sergius, is the only church to which tourists in search of shows are annually haled by their exceedingly ignorant dragomans; and it thanks for this distinction rather the legend which points to the crypt as the resting-place of the Holy Family on their arrival at Masr, than any artistic or antiquarian attraction supposed to reside in the building. Yet its inherent interest is very great, though possibly second to that of Al Mu’allakah… Who the St Sergius was to whom this church is dedicated is uncertain. Two saints of the name are recorded in the Coptic calendar: one martyred with his father and sister, whose festival is on the thirteenth day of Amshir (7th Feb.), the other a ‘follower of Wakas and saddler at the court of King Maximianus’, whose feast falls on the tenth day of Babeth (7th Oct.).”
