This book seeks to heighten the reader's awareness of the artistic wealth and architectural diversity of Cappadocia, focusing in particular on the murals that adorn its churches and sanctuaries. Nineteen structures are presented in this volume. They were chosen mainly for the quality of their murals some of which rank among the most important treasures of the Byzantine and Medieval heritages. The superb photographs of Ahmet Ertug meticulously capture the interiors of these wonderful churches in astonishing detail, many of them in remote and all but inaccessible locations. These extraordinary images are accompanied by an authoritative and highly readable text by Catherine Joliet-Levy of Paris University, a respected specialist with thirty years of research and publications on the cultural heritage of Byzantine and Medieval Cappadocia.
