Saint Catherine’s Monastery in the Sinai, founded by Emperor Justinian in the 6th century, is the oldest functioning monastery of the Greek Orthodox Church. It not only houses great treasures of Christian art through the centuries, in particular icons, but also one of the largest manuscript libraries in the world. The more than 3,000 manuscripts which are preserved there are written in all the languages of the Christian Orient (in addition to Greek, also in Arabic, Syriac, Georgian, Armenian, etc.) and often contain unpublished material. Through the Sinai Palimpsests Project, in which the editors are significantly involved, and the ongoing Sinai Digitization Project, in which some members of the International Advisory Board are participating, this material is increasingly being made available to a wider public. This series is therefore primarily intended to provide an international platform for the resulting research and editions. The series will also welcome contributions connected to the Sinai cultural heritage in a broader sense. For instance, those related to art history, archaeology, history of monasticism, liturgiology, history of scholarship. The covered time span extends from the 6th century to the present day.
