Manuscripts from the St. Catherine’s Monastery Gallery

Its library of 4500 ancient Christian manuscripts is second only to that of the Vatican Library in Rome. The ancient manuscripts are mainly in Greek, but also in Arabic, Armenian, Coptic, Georgian, Slavonic and Syriac. Only one is in Latin. Some are exquisitely illuminated.
