The Museum of Chora: Mosaic and Frescoes

By Aksit, Ilhan

Istanbul: Aksit Kultur, 2008 A beautifully illustrated guide to the glorious Byzantine mosaics of the Church of the Holy Savior in Chora ( now called the The Kariye Museum "The Kariye {Chora} Museum, in which we regard the mosaics with a deep sense of admiration, is situated in the Edirnekapi quarter of Istanbul. The name Kariye id derived from the Greek word "Chora" which means land, country, a suburban area, as well as countryside. The Monastery of Chora was thus named, as it lied outside of the city wallas built by the Emperor Constantine. Although the monastery lied within the walls built by the Emperor Theodosius in 413 A.D., its name still remained unchanged and it was referred to as the Chora. During the reign of Emperor Justinian, the monastery was devastated by an earthquake on October 6, 557. The Emperior had then rebuilt the monastery as a basilica. The monastery was again in ruins in the VIII. Century ad it was restored again in 843 A.D. After that, the history of the Chora Monastery lies in profound darkness until the 11th Century." 155p.lllus.. French Wraps. As New. Illus. by Translator Uluer Bilgen.
