Come and learn about Helen Rufus-Ward's uplifting pilgrimage to St Catherine's Monastery at The Arts Society Birmingham's next lecture on Wednesday 19 June. St Catherine’s Monastery is a splendid basilica with exquisite little chapels, intricately carved wooden doors and breathtaking mosaics. It has an amazing collection of the rarest early icons, and a library of rare and beautiful religious manuscripts. The Monastery stands at the foot of Mount Sinai and is the place where Moses received the Ten Commandments. It is also the location of the legend of the Burning Bush and the resting place of the martyred body of St Catherine.
Proceedings begin at 10.50 am (please be seated by 10.45). Coffee and biscuits are available from 9.45. Visitors are welcome!
