THE CAVE CHURCH OF PAUL THE HERMIT AT THE MONASTERY OF ST. PAUL, EGYPT
The Coptic monastery of St. Paul by the Red Sea grew around the cave where Paul, the first Christian hermit, lived in solitude. The cave served as a shrine in late antiquity, became a church in the middle ages, and expanded again in the early modern period. This visually and intellectually exciting book chronicles the history of a series of devotional paintings in the Cave Church. Fully illustrated, most in color.
