Mosaics and frescoes from Chora (Kariye) Church



A church sort of day: morning worship with the local Anglicans (smells and bells!) and afternoon at the breathtaking church of St. Saviour in Chora, a.k.a. Kariye. I am up correcting the last of the student papers and calculating final grades, since the grades are due first thing in the a.m., so words will have to wait, but meanwhile, some pictures. The church is now a museum. But the icons still speak.
