Dr. Michael Jones at St John’s Church Maadi
Dr Michael Jones will host a visual presentation of the restoration of the 6th century Red Monastery near Sohag in Upper Egypt. Not only does this monastery still serve surrounding Coptic communities and pilgrims who visit during the big feasts of the Coptic liturgical year, but as the only standing ensemble of architecture, sculpture, and
paint left from the late antique
period in the Mediterranean, it is highly significant to art historians.
