|St. Catherine's Monastery, Eygpt|
The monastery is associated with St. Catherine of Alexandria, who was a Christian Martyr. Originally sentenced to die on the wheel, she didn’t die and was beheaded instead. According to legend, St. Catherine’s body was carried to the site of the monastery by angels. A Sinai monk once had a vision of her body at the top of a nearby mountain named Mount Catherine which is the highest summit in Sinai, where her remains were discovered. It’s said that monks found her remains in 800 AD.
