As discussed in an earlier post, Saint Catherine's Monastery in Sinai has been continuously inhabited since the fourth century A.D. Remarkably, a lavish figural mosaic program from the sixth century, occupying the conch of the church's apse and a surrounding triumphal arch, survives to this day.
This blog accompanied the special exhibition Byzantium and Islam: Age of Transition, on view March 14–July 8, 2012.
