Saint Catherine Monastery
Saint Catherine's Monastery (Greek: Μονὴ τῆς Ἁγίας Αἰκατερίνης, Monē tēs Hagias Aikaterinēs, Arabic: دير القدّيسة كاترين), officially "Sacred Monastery of the God-Trodden Mount Sinai" (Modern Greek: Ιερά Μονή του Θεοβαδίστου Όρους Σινά, Ierá Moní tou Theovadístou Órous Siná), lies on the Sinai Peninsula, at the mouth of a gorge at the foot of Mount Sinai, in the city of Saint Catherine, Egypt in the South Sinai Governorate. The monastery is controlled by the autocephalous Church of Sinai, part of the wider Eastern Orthodox Church, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Built between 548 and 565, the monastery is one of the oldest working Christian monasteries in the world. The site contains the world's oldest continually operating library, possessing many unique books including the Syriac Sinaiticus and, until 1859, the Codex Sinaiticus.
