Ruggieri V., Zah A. "Visiting the Byzantine Wall Paintings in Turkey", Orientalia Christiana & Valore Italiano, 2016. ISBN 978-88-97789-41-3 (Book size A4 210 x 297 mm - Color/BN pp. 228 - english edition).

The landscape of Byzantine painting is thus geographically located in the provinces and spans over several centuries. Despite being fragmented, this gallery bears witness of the need, the persistence, and the stylistic flexibility of a style embodied by the Byzantine character: that is to say, of its eagerness to understand, and therefore to believe and hope. Just as many monuments have been destroyed by humans, likewise a small or large portion of what is presented in this book will also disappear: may these pages reassert the presence of a culture which, one hopes, will always find new and sincere lovers.


The volume will be published for the celebrations of the Pontificio Istituto Orientale’s (PIO’s) centenary: it was an honour that P. Guillaume de Jerphanion gave the opening lesson of the course on Byzantine frescoes. Our most sincere gratitude also to the two Rectors of the PIO, PP. James McCann and David Nazar, who supported and funded our work. For the patient work on the English text, we thank Vicky Franzinetti, Dr. Sr. Rachel Lynne Panagia Miola and Dr Christina Maranci. Although the text and the aim is one, each author is responsible for his section of the text. In addition, it must be granted that the quality of the photos is not always excellent, due to the rather inaccessible position of the fresco on the wall. Needless to say, we opted to present a sample rather than the total of the fragments of frescoes on site. When no other source is indicated, photos are from the PIO.
