Fall 2018 Off Campus Events:

Fall 2018 World to Wyoming Series with Mark Jenkins

September 18-19 & September 24, 25, & 27, World to Wyoming Lecture Series with Mark Jenkins, Camels, Climbing and St. Catherine: An Expedition to Egypt” with events in Rock Springs, Lander, Torrington, Casper, and Cheyenne

Hidden in the heart of the desert mountains of the Sinai Peninsula are enormous walls and domes of red granite. In November, National Geographic writer and Center for Global Studies Senior Fellow Mark Jenkins led a 4-man team of Wyoming climbers to South Sinai. The team lived with the Bedouin, traveled by camel caravan and put up new routes on 1000-foot walls.

South Sinai is a pivotal region in the three Abrahamic religions: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. It was on Mount Sinai that Moses, according to the Old Testament, received the Ten Commandments. At the base of Mt. Sinai lies Saint Catherine’s Monastery, built in 565 A.D. upon the site where Moses saw the burning bush. St. Catherine’s is the oldest continuously operating monastery in the world. Christians and Muslims have lived here in harmony for over a millennium.

Camels, Climbing and St. Catherine: An Expedition to Egypt, is about climbing big walls in a remote land, about Christian monks and Bedouin nomads, about a place where tolerance is more powerful than terrorism.

Tuesday, September 18 in Rock Springs at Western Wyoming Community College, Room 1302 @ 7 p.m.
