Helena I, Constantine's mother, had a chapel built in the city of St. Catherine, Egypt on Mount Sinai, around what was and is believed to be the burning bush that Moses saw.  Today the St. Catherine monastery surrounds that chapel.  The complete name of the monastery is The Sacred and Imperial Monastery of the God Trodden Mount of Sinai.  Over 170 saints are associated with the monastery.
