  • in the Smoke Mountain, an hour and a half from the town of al-Nabak in Syria. This monastery was built in the sixth century and renovated in 1556. It became a metropolitan see at the end of the fourteenth century. It was inhabited until 1832, when it was usurped from us (by the seceding faction which joined the Church of Rome) through political influence and later was deserted. Two Patriarchs and twenty bishops graduated from it.5
