3D Laser Scanning at the Red Monastery Church Project

Grantee: Elizabeth Bolman: Temple University

Category: Conservation, Preservation & Presentation

Objective: For well over a decade, ARCE has been documenting, conserving and studying the late 5th century Red Monastery church near Sohag in Middle Egypt. The project is very close to completion, with the final work set to be finish in 2014. The monument has come from almost total obscurity to international prominence because it represents the best surviving example of monumental paintings from the Greek, Roman and early Byzantine periods. The AEF Committee are pleased to support this project that will undertake a complete 3D laser scan of the building, to document the monument at the completion of the restoration, as comprehensively as current technology will allow, so that it may stand as a record and be fully appreciated by future generations.
