Full Description

4to. 28pp, with photo frontispiece. Original printed wrappers, the wrappers a little soiled and also slightly chipped at outer edge of back cover. No ownership inscription but from the library of William St.Clair.

A useful publication for its date on this handsome Byzantine church five miles from Athens, notable for the extensive series of mural paintings decorating its interior. The author had had the opportunity to study the church during a stay in Athens on a scholarship from the University of Edinburgh in 1913. He had written his remarks as an article for the Transactions of the Scottish Ecclesiological Society, but this is a separate printing on better paper.
