Historical Dependencies
 

The Sinai dependencies, to be found principally outside of Egypt, reflect the devotion that is manifested around the world towards the Holy Monastery of Sinai. They were widespread, and associated with a particular period of the monastery’s history. In more recent years, a number of these have been ceded to local churches, and this has ensured their preservation to this day. These include the dependencies at Rouen in France, at Messina in Italy, at Calcutta in India, and further dependencies in Spain, Serbia, Georgia, Syria, Lebanon, and Ethiopia.

The monastery’s dependencies in Greece and Cyprus have always been important. There were also renowned dependencies in Asia Minor, in all the Balkan countries, and in Moldovlachia, whose rulers nurtured particular respect for the monastery. There were further dependencies in Bessarabia, in Kiev in Ukraine, and in Russia. In the middle of the nineteenth century, Sinai had more than eighty dependencies throughout the world. Most of these were ceded to local churches with the emergence of nation states, or lost to the monastery at the time of the Russian revolution.
