Parallels to the Mar Saba Letter - Crazy Monks Would Write Texts Anywhere Part 2473

the Homily of Evodius of Rome c. 12th century CE
Monastery Old Dongola

There is a well established tradition of monks writing on plastered walls.  At the school of Amheida we see the Greek Classics written on the wall of the school.  Also the Balaam Inscription of Tel Days Alla (in the pre-Common Era period).
