Saint Catherine Foundation

Under the patronage of HRH the Prince of Wales, and with the full consent of thSaint Catherine Foundation e Orthodox Fathers of the Monastery of St. Catherine, the Saint Catherine Foundation brings together distinguished international religious figures, academics, businessmen and other interested persons who are united in their concern for the preservation of the Monastery of Saint Catherine at Mount Sinai.

Saint Catherine's is a living centre of the Orthodox faith. The members of this working monastic community are dedicated to a life of service, prayer and contemplation, while undertaking to preserve their rich religious heritage. The resources of the monastery have, however, been overwhelmed by the task of safeguarding its many treasures.

Acting at the behest of the monks themselves, the Saint Catherine Foundation was established in 1996 to increase public awareness of the problems faced by the monastery and to raise funds for its conservation. The monastery's immediate conservation needs have been defined in conjunction both with the monks and with conservation experts in Egypt, Greece and at the London Institute's Camberwell College of Arts. The Foundation is presently raising funds for the conservation of the manuscript collection, comprising some 4,500 early books and scrolls. Some $3 million will be needed to create environmentally controlled storage and archival systems and to initiate a broad conservation programme dedicated to the minimum intervention compatible with long-term survival.
