Byzantine Church Architecture

   
by Constantine Cavarnos

A volume of Byzantine Churches of Thessaloniki / Byzantine Church Architecture

“This book is a sequel to my work Byzantine Churches of Thessaloniki, which was published in 1995. It has the subtitle: ‘An Illustrated Account of the Architecture and Iconographic Decoration of Seven Byzantine Churches of Thessaloniki.’ The texts presented in this present volume were written on various occasions. I have selected them and published them in a certain order to serve a twofold purpose, namely: 1) To help Orthodox Christians to better understand the various parts that together constitute the church building, their character and function, when they are such as they ought to be. 2) To aid architects who undertake to build Orthodox churches to do so correctly; and also, whenever possible, to make certain modifications in existing churches that will make them more expressive of Orthodox theology and spirituality. This book is also addressed to all persons who are interested in architecture as a major fine art, capable of serving human purposes of the highest order. For Byzantine church architecture, taking into account the needs of the other major church arts, iconography and sacred music or hymnody, succeeds, in unison with them, in giving powerful expression to the transcendent, the spiritual, the divine.”
