In Pictures: Christian Images in Egypt

Standard

Iconography from the oldest church in the oldest monastery in the world

The curtain separating the holy of holies in a Coptic Church (the Holy of Holies is where the Holy Communion is kept, I think)

The entrance to St. Anthony’s monastery the first monastery in the world

How most big Coptic Churches tend to look

I just loved this sign it reads: No blessing and not acceptance for anyone who writes on the monastery’s walls…

gotta love the multiculturalism in this carving… Jesus loves the little children….
