I doubt that this is the oldest Christian monastery.

It was reportedly established by St. Athanasius the Great himself in AD 344. You may read the following article (in Bulgarian): [1]. --Vladko 09:37, 26 Apr 2005 (CDT)

How wonderful! I found another mention of it here (about half-way down the page, with pictures). --magda 09:58, 26 Apr 2005 (CDT)
