St. Catherine’s Monastery
The Monastery of St. Katherine lies at the foot of the Gebel Musa, or Mount Moses, in the heart of South Sinai. In 330 AD, the mother of Emperor Constantine, Empress Helena, ordered the construction of a small church by Moses' Burning Bush. It was called the Church of the Transfiguration. The fortified monastery we see today had built around this church during the reign of Emperor Justinian (527-565 AD).
In the 11th century, the monastery dedicated to St. Katherine of Alexandria, who had died in 310 AD. Her remains reportedly found by monks on a mountain peak next to Mt Sinai, had buried in the monastery's Basilica. Currently, the monastery is own and run by the Greek Orthodox Church. Its rich library houses the world's second largest collection of illuminated manuscripts after the Vatican. You can see the Burning Bush and a large number of antique works of art: invaluable icons, beautifully carved doors, exquisite wall paintings and other fine religious ornaments.
