Default Re: Time

Thout is just another spelling of Thoth, and is the first month of the Coptic Calendar, that starts on 11th September in our era, it is kept in line with the Gregorian Calendar, the Coptic Calendar is the last remnant of the ancient Egyptian Calendar, and the date of New Year will change from 11th September at the end of 2100 AD.

As some branches of the church still value Thout, then we should examine why Egyptian gods are still valued within the Christian church, all be it Orthodox, the symbolic meaning behind 11th September in the Coptic Church Is Sirius/Isis rising with the Sun, however because the Coptic Calender is linked with the Gregorian Calendar, this doesn't happen anywhere in Egypt today.
