Egypt: St. Katherine’s Manuscripts, cont.

My eyes scanned Father Justin’s work tables.   He is in the process of documenting and scanning the contents of this place.  What an amazing and daunting task!

He leafed through different texts and discussed them.  The Ladder of Divine Ascent, from the 13th century.  The Codex Theodosianus, from the 10th century, written in gold leaf.

The saints are holding the book–you can see the details of the cover.

Again, sorry about the quality of the photos.  The lighting was poor, and I was shooting as fast as I could!
