I am trying to find writings of Saint Athanasius on the Holy Family; Jesus, Mary, and Joseph; the Holy Family at Nazareth; the Holy Family's sojourn in Egypt; the hidden life of Jesus; etc.

Somewhere in storage I have a book that I got in Egypt that recounted their journey.  I don't recall off hand if St. Athanasius had any words on it.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I have a similar book given to me by a Coptic priest who is also a friend. I do not recall any accounts written by St. Athanasius in it, however; just a lot of information on the routes and the churches founded there, etc.

Paul Perry did a good DVD in which he travelled to the holy places in Egypt where the Holy Family had been.  It seems to be out of stock now, though:

Otto Meinardus wrote a book about the Holy Family in Egypt, but I have not read it, and I'm not sure if it is in print.  I did read another book of his, though, in which he describes all the places of pilgrimage in Egypt, including places where the Holy Family stayed.  That one is called Coptic Saints and Pilgrimages

Do you recall the titles of the books?
