New Video of the Conservation Work at the Red Monastery in Sohag
The Red Monastery church in Sohag is an astonishingly rare example of the coloristic intensity of late antique monuments in Egypt. In this church, late antique paintings cover about eighty percent of the walls, niches, columns, pilasters, pediments and apses.

The Red Monastery Project collaborated with the Metropolitan Museum of Art to produce this video which offers a visual tour of the work completed to date. It is narrated by ARCE Project Director, Dr. Elizabeth Bolman of Temple University. View the video >>

This video is part of the Metropolitan Museum's exhibit, Byzantium and Islam: Age of Transition running through July 8th, 2012.
