Bedouin at the Forty Martyrs

Several bedouin families live in the area around the Church of the Forty Martyrs, known in Arabic as El Arbain.

The monks distribute foodstuffs to the bedouin on the feastday

One of the bedouin plays a five stringed lyre. The frame is made from simple branches with pegs for tuning the strings. An empty oil tin serves as the soundboard.
