- Scene-by-scene guide to the spectacular mosaics and frescoes of the late Byzantine church in Istanbul now known as the Kariye Camii
The church now known as the Kariye Camii in Istanbul, once the heart of the Chora monastery, is justifiably famous for its impressive cycles of mosaic and fresco. This book provides a scene-by-scene guide to its spectacular decoration. With its domes, narthexes, burial chapel and other additions, the Kariye Camii stands at the forefront of Late Byzantine achievement.
