According to Christian tradition, Elijah rested here after fleeing the vengeance of Jezebel, it is said to be the burial place of the Greek Bishop Elias of Bethlehem who died in 1345, St. Elias, an Egyptian monk who became Patriarch of Jerusalem in 494.

During the 1967 Six-Day War, the Israel Defense Forces overran Jordanian defences around the monastery on the way to Bethlehem and Hebron. After 1967 the height, known as Elijah Hill, was renamed in Hebrew as Givat ha'Arba'a, Hill of the Four, in honour of the four victims. Facing the monastery is a stone bench erected by the wife of the painter William Holman Hunt, who painted some of his major works at this spot.

NAO found a liability in that this sort of culture for breaching regulations could spread to the rest of the organization.
