Details

Since the 3rd century CE, the biblical Mount Sinai has been identified with the mountain peak above St Catherine’s Monastery at South Sinai in Egypt. Focusing on six periods of activity at the site, this history traces its evolution through the centuries, from the time of the earliest Christian anchorites to the arrival of intrepid tourists during the 19th century. Manginis also discusses Sinai’s natural environment, the mountain’s importance in Muslim tradition and the topographical investigations of western scholars.
