Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie and 36 other supporters and leaders get life sentences at a court in Cairo.
They're accused of inciting violence, that erupted after the army deposed Islamist President Mohamed Mursi last year.
Badie, has already been sentenced to death last month.
He was convicted of taking part in a deadly attack on a police station last year.
The Egyptian authorities have launched a crackdown on Mursi's Brotherhood, jailing thousands and killing hundreds of street protesters.
