A handsome volume which was the second monograph in the Byzantine Research Fund series. It provides a careful illustrated account of this well-preserved sixth-eighth century church, which had previously attracted the attention of Choisy. The book’s author, Walter Sykes George, a Soane Medallist of the RIBA, writes intelligently on the church’s vaulting and construction.
