San Sergio's or Cave ChurchApril 11, 2021 in Egypt ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C
Much is made here of the flight of the Holy Family from Herod's Slaughter of the Innocents. This church is on the site of a cave where the Holy Family is reported to have sheltered.
The 1st picture is a small chapel in the very cave. At the bottom you can see a bit of the original cave. The 2nd is self explanatory. 3rd is an example of coptic/arabic translation. This church dates to before the switch to arabic and so has a collection of works from that period.
4th is inside the church.
