Art & Architecture
Byzantine churches in Constantinople : their history and architecture
Alexander Van Millingen, 1912
This book is a study of the architecture of one of the greatest European cities during the medieval period. A main limitation in the study of Byzantine churches is that none of the architecture has survived in its original form. This book traces the history of church architecture and the culture of "new Rome." Millingen gives a good account of various major events, manners, and anecdotes associated with Byzantine churches. He examines general planning in the construction of churches in Constantinople and the influence of Greek architecture.
