Overview

Intended for the popular reader, this is an excellent introduction to the ancient Monastery of Saint Catherine, located at the site where Moses is believed to have seen the burning bush and received the ten commandments. Evans (curator of Early Christian and Byzantine art, Metropolitan Museum of Art) has written a lengthy essay describing the history of the monastery and the layout and uses of the buildings and sacred sites it contains. There are photographs of all parts of the monastery, its collection of icons, and the celebration of the (Eastern Orthodox) religious feasts held there. Distributed by Yale U. Press (their ISBN: 0-300-10279-8). Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
