3 Coptic Monasteries of Egypt, 2007 Introduction In early 2007 a project was initiated to document the current state of the Coptic Monasteries and Churches in Egypt with a pilot at Deir al-salib, The Monastery of The Cross, in Naqada. The project was launched by The Saint Mark Foundation through Dr. Fawzy Estafanous. It will ultimately result in a compilation of photographs and documents in book and digital format deposited in The Coptic Culture Center in Cairo, Egypt. A photographic team recorded the exteriors and interiors of Deir al-salib, prioritizing the key artifacts and the state of the buildings. Other monasteries in Naqada under the auspices of His Grace Bishop Biemen were also photographed. These monasteries were catalogued to a lesser extent than Deir al-salib, given the initial focus of the pilot, and will need more extensive work in the future. 1

6 The Monasteries of Naqada The focus of the pilot project was Deir al-salib, The Monastery of The Cross. The monastery has two churches, one of which, the west church, has been extensively renovated. The east church, which is older, is particularly noteworthy for the two altars it has on its center altar, one of which is extremely old. The other monasteries photographed were: Deir Abu-Lif, The Monastery of St. Andrews; Deir al-malak, The Monastery of Archangel Michael; Abu Seifien, The Monastery of Saint Philopater; Deir Anba Bisintius, The Monastery of Abbot Pisentius; Deir al-magma, The Monastery of Saint George; and Deir Mari Buqtur, The Monastery of Saint Boktor. The photographs of the other monasteries were done as part of an initial survey process and consequently may not be the same level of quality as the photographs at Deir al-salib. They are intended to capture the scope of the project as each monastery and church offers its own unique challenges. While maintaining the quality of these scouting photographs was a concern, most were taken either handheld, or with flash, and consequently are not as sharp and clear as would be expected from the final product. (Note: Numbers on the floor plans for Deir al-salib are referenced in the legends of the photographs on the following pages.) 4
