Description
The Coptic Monastery of St. Paul by the Red Sea grew up around the cave where Paul, the first Christian hermit, lived in solitude. It became a shrine in late antiquity and a church in the Middle Ages, and expanded again in the early modern period. This intriguing and beautifully presented book chronicles the history of a series of devotional paintings in the Cave Church, seen in 250 color photos and 60 black and white photos and drawings. They were first commissioned in the 13th century during one of the greatest eras of Coptic art, then were repainted in the 18th century, helping to inaugurate a Coptic renaissance after centuries of decline.

"Handsomely produced with scholarly commentary and excellent reproductions, this volume stands as both social history and art book."Art Times

"This sumptuous feast of a book presents groundbreaking, multidisciplinary work on the Monastery of St. Paul the Hermit near Egypt's Red Sea coast.... The book undoubtedly will influence future research on Coptic art and culture."Catholic Historical Review
