AboutAn extraordinary tale of 19th-century adventure and struggle against the odds. In 1892, two Ayrshire ladies, rich and eccentric, journeyed deep into the Sinai desert to discover a priceless find, and went on to reinvent themselves, in middle-age, as world-class scholars of Syriac and Arabic manuscripts.
Janet Soskice, of the University of Cambridge, author of BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week Sisters of Sinai, leads a remarkable exploration.
