Alexandrine Rite

The Alexandrian Rite is officially called the Liturgy of Saint Mark, traditionally regarded as the first bishop of Alexandria.

The Alexandrian Rite contains elements from the liturgy of Saint Basil, Cyril the Great, and Saint Gregory Nazianzus. The Liturgy of Saint Cyril is a Coptic version of the Liturgy of Saint Mark that was in Greek.

The Alexandrian Rite is sub-grouped into two rites: the Coptic Rite and the Ge'ez Rite.

Primarily located in Egypt, the Coptic Rite uses the Coptic in its liturgy in both the Coptic Orthodox Church and the Coptic Catholic Church.

The Ge'ez Rite is found in Ethiopia, Eritrea, Jerusalem, and Somalia. It is used by the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, the Eritrean Orthodox Tewahedo Church, and the Ethiopian Catholic Church in their liturgies.
