The Holy Family

Egypt is identified in the Bible as the place where the Holy Family fled from Bethlehem to Egypt, seeking refuge from a bloodthirsty King Herod. They made an arduous 2,000km trek by donkey over four years which took them over 30 different places in Egypt, from Al-Farma down to the Al-Muharraq monastery.
Needless to say, the Holy Family’s Journey is an extremely important event in the Coptic tradition, and they celebrate Jesus’ arrival in Egypt every year on June 1st (the 24th day of the Coptic month Bashans).

From 1st century with the arrival of Saint Mark in Alexandria, Christianity quickly spread throughout Egypt. Monasticism was born in Egypt and by the 4th century there were hundreds of monasteries, and thousands of cells and caves scattered throughout the Egyptian desert and around places where the Holy Family was supposed to have stayed. A great number of these monasteries are still flourishing to this day.
If you know the bible well, you’ll remember that Jesus and the Holy family fled from Bethlehem to Egypt, seeking refuge from a bloodthirsty King Herod. They made an arduous 2,000km trek by donkey over four years which took them over 30 different places in Egypt, from Al-Farma down to the Al-Muharraq monastery.
