St. Antony's Monastery Conservation
An ancient church in the Coptic Monastery of St. Antony at the Red Sea contains a unique cycle of thirteenth century Coptic wall paintings. They constitute the most complete and best preserved iconographic program of Christian paintings to come from medieval Egypt.
The primary conservation program by ARCE at St. Antony's Monastery was conducted between 1996-1999. Since then, work has been ongoing to help the monastery develop a registrar database and exhibit liturgical artifacts in a new museum on-site.

The International Council of Museums, in an effort to fight against illicit traffic in cultural goods, compiles the Emergency Red List of Egyptian Cultural Objects at Risk. This list aims to help art and heritage professionals and law enforcement officials identify Egyptian objects that are protected by national and international legislations.
