This chapter discusses St. Anba Ruways and the history related to the foundation of the St. Mark Cathedral in Cairo over the site of his monastery. The shrine of the saint lies under the church altar, and to the right of the shrine, on the south, four patriarchs are buried: Pope Mattaeus I (eighty-seventh), who was a contemporary of the saint; Pope Yuhanna XI (eighty-ninth); Pope Mattaeus II (ninetieth); and Pope Ghobrial VI (ninety-first). Downstairs lie the relics of the disciple of Anba Ruways named Sulayman, and the relics of St. Abali ibn Yostos (1 Misra) in a closed chamber. Many of the Coptic elites who served under Muhammad Ali and his sons were buried in this monastery.
