Jerusalem - Father Columba Stewart meets the Syriac community in the Old City. The St. Mark's Syrian Orthodox Monastery Church is the center of the Syriacs, who consider themselves as the first ever community to adopt Christianity. The monastery holds a collection of hundreds of invaluable manuscripts written by several Christian Patriarchs in the 5th and 6th century AD. Thanks to the efforts of Father Stewart Columba, the monastery's manuscript collection has all been digitized.
