Church of Chora, Istanbul's Byzantine Marvel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The Church of Chora book is the most comprehensive digital guide describing some of the oldest and finest surviving Byzantine mosaics and frescoes in the Church of the Holy Saviour in Chora located in Istanbul, Turkey. 

The book has been created with such passion and zest, the way I always feel entering the church of Chora. The use of interactive maps, voice narrations, and videos greatly improve reader experience. It provides fine detailed photographs capturing mosaic narrative programs and icons in the narthexes, and frescoes in the parekklesion. For each surviving scene, there are citations and references from the Old and New Testament as well as Greek original writings appearing upon. It gives readers an opportunity to learn about the life of the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ among other biblical events. One evidently comes to appreciate the work of Theodoros Metochites, the church’s main instigator.
