When Science and Religion meet

New developments in technology are allowing scholars greater insight into the wisdom of the past by opening up some of the earliest Christian writings.

In addition to making these previously unread documents available to scholars, this new photographic technology will also enable many of these texts to be made available on the Internet for everyone to see.

How fitting that this takes place within a monastery - the Monastery of Saint Catherine at Mount Sinai to be exact. Monasteries were the centers of Christian teaching for centuries and helped promote the development of Western Culture - now the fruits of that culture are helping to uncover its hidden roots.
