  • 354. Mark, Monastery of St.1
  • both located in Jerusalem. St. Mark is also known as the Monastery of the Syrians. It is an old monastery, built in the fifth or sixth century, according to an Estrangelo Syriac inscription on a stone discovered in 1940. Today it is the see of our metropolitan and it has been the home of our monks since 1472. The monastery has a magnificent library and a press. It has produced seven bishops.5

Errata

Moosa's English translation of Barsoum's description erroneously implies "Mark the Evangelist Monastery" and "Monastery of the Virgin" are two separate monasteries, when they are two names for the same monastery.
