LocationAbu Ghosh, Israel

The Benedictine monastery in Abu Ghosh, named St Mary of the Resurrection Abbey, is a monastery run by the Olivetan Benedictine order. It is centered on the Church of the Resurrection, or Church of our Lord's Resurrection, built by the Crusaders in the 12th century on top of Roman ruins in the center of the village of Abu Ghosh, Israel. The Crusaders assumed for a while that the village, which they called Fontenoid and the Arabs called until the 19th century Qaryet al-'Inab, was standing at the site of Emmaus from the Gospel of Luke.
