Abbey of the Dormition

The Abbey of the Dormition is a Benedictine abbey in Jerusalem, located on Mount Zion, just outside the walls of the Old City. The name “Dormition” is derived from the Christian belief in the “dormition,” or “falling asleep,” of the Virgin Mary, which is an event commemorated in Eastern Christianity and refers to the end of Mary’s earthly life and her assumption into heaven.
