Isa, is there anything you don't know! That bit of info was not in the article, very good to know though. Thanks.
It's on page 3 (313) of the PDF, but yes, Isa is a very learned man.
As with everything else these days, some of the monasteries also have websites:Mor Gabriel
(the oldest surviving Syriac Orthodox monastery, est. 397. Website in Turkish and English)Deir ul-Zafaran (Saffron Monastery)
(only in Turkish, but with lots of pictures and such)
I would love to visit some day. Your bishop is a very lucky man, Father Peter.
