The text presents the method used for the treatment of gaps in the mosaic of the Transfiguration in St. Catherine's Monastery in Sinai, conserved by CCA in the years 2005-2010. While recognizing this issue a relatively minor role in the hierarchy of the aspects that make up a complex program such as the one implemented in Santa Caterina, the debate that preceded the decision and the importance of the monument, however, make a case that could take a sample value (positive or negative) within a dialectical methodology that has left on this issue and rivers and mountains of pages of words.
