Description

The volume commences with a historical introduction and a general discussion of Byzantine art and Cyprus. The first section concerned with monuments covers the churches with mosaics (three buildings at Lythrankomi, Kiti and Livadia). This is followed by the much longer list of painted churches under 42 locality headings (villages or towns), listing 58 buildings. Brief directions are provided under the heading of each village to facilitate access. The history of each monument is described in detail, together with extensive description of the preserved paintings. The majority of the illustrations are photographs of the monuments and their wall paintings; smaller numbers of architectural ground plans and sections are also included. The book ends with a list of Cypriot saints, glossary, bibliography and index.
