Abstract

Since 1967 tourism has overwhelmed the Monastery of St. Catherine in the Sinai peninsula. The sacredness of the place and its monastic life have been compromised by hordes of secular tourists. The Egyptian government views this site as having large economic potential; possibilities for conflict over the amount and kind of tourism loom ahead.―(DWG)
