I was just wondering why it is that in the Eastern Orthodox Churches we celebrate St. Anthony the Great on Jan. 17th and the Coptic Orthodox Church celebrates him on Jan. 30th? Also do the other Oriental Orthodox Churches also celebrate St. Anthony on Jan. 30th as well?

It may have to do with the fact that the Coptic Church is on the old calendar.

In the Armenian Church, St. Anthony is celebrated in the middle of January.

The Erie Old Believer/Ritualist prayer book says January 30th for the civil calendar, so my guess is, as Salpy already mentioned, this is simply a matter of old calendar versus new calendar, rather than anything particular about the Copts.

I was just wondering because I read this from wikipedia:
"He is celebrated in many churches on his feast days: 17 January in the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church; and (January 30) in the Coptic Orthodox Church, the Coptic Catholic Church and the Russian Orthodox Church"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Anthony_the_Great

Now I know wikipedia isn't the best place to get info so that's why I wanted to post the question on here. My church also celebrates St. Anthony on Jan 30th, but on our church calendar it is Jan 17th as we follow the Julian calendar. So I was just a little confused on what the article meant but I guess it is just an old vs new calendar thing.
