  • 214. Gabriel, Monastery of Mor1
  • four hour journey east of Midyat, is the most famous monastery in Tur ʿAbdin. It was built in 397 by the two ascetics, St. Samuel and St. Simon. It is commonly called the Monastery of St. Gabriel, after its abbot and bishop Gabriel (d. 667). This monastery was the metropolitan see of Tur ʿAbdin from 615 to 1049. Afterwards, its metropolitan was the ecclesiastical leader of a large part of Tur ʿAbdin; still later, however, his jurisdiction was restricted to a private diocese until 1915. This monastery claims four Patriarchs, a Maphryono and seventy bishops. It is still inhabited.5
