I agree with you; each of these old monasteries deserves its own entry/encyclopedia page. Thanks+

Revision as of 15:11, August 26, 2005

St. Catherine's and St. Anthony's (external links on this page) monasteries are among the oldest monasteries in the world. This article says of St. Catherine's: "It has been called the oldest working Christian monastery, though St. Anthony's predates it, and the smallest diocese in the world." I think it's true enough to count them each "one of the oldest Christian monasteries." Once the St. Anthony's Monastery page is started, discussion should be held there.
