Product details

Ancient, mysterious, darkened by centuries of smoke from incense holders, the gleaming oil lamps, and countless thousands of candles, the ascetic faces on the icons forbid the uninitiated to approach the holy sanctuary. The congregation stands humbly, submerged in the deep tones of the black-robed priest's hypnotic incantation; some seek a saint's blessing at little shrines by walls and pillars, or gaze once more at the illustrations of the Word painted on walls and ceiling by some longforgotten hand in this world where Time stands still.
Having visited monasteries from famous Meteora in Greece poised, to escape hundreds of years of marauding hordes, on the top of a needle-point mountain hundreds of feet above the valley below, to Saint. Catherine's monastery at the foot of Mount Sinai on the Arabian peninsula, built in the territory of, and protected by, the Bedouin, I can attest to the fact that this world remains intact within the Monastery's walls.
