Description
Originally constructed in 5th-century Constantinople, the Chora Church was later converted into a mosque, only to be restored in the 20th century. The church's expressive frescoesódepicting the life of the Virgin Mary and Christóare the focus of this book, which showcases the artwork and the conservation process in dozens of color and black and white photographs. The text relates the long, rich history of the Chora Church, as well as Byzantine Institute of America founder Thomas Wittemore's tireless efforts to preserve the building's unique treasures.
