Conference Paper
Full-text available
Extant remains indicate that separate strands of the Church of the eastern Roman provinces up to the sixth century CE can be distinguished in some cases by the architectural form of their church buildings related in terms of symbolism to the theological doctrine of their commissioners/builders (Balderstone 2004, 2007). Can the same be said for the...

The continuing use of a particular type of Trinity image in Russian churches – the ‘paternity’ image following its banning in 1667 by the Church Council of Moscow suggests more than just a reaction from disgruntled Old Believers. The fact that a major flourishing of its use in the late 17th and early 18th centuries occurred after attempts by Patria...

For Australians Beersheba represents a powerful symbol of their daring and military success in the Palestine Campaign of the First World War. But is this adequately memorialised by the bronze sculpture of a Light Horseman and interpretative panels forming part of a children’s park in the outer suburbs of the new town, and the sad remembrance of liv...

It looks at how the iconography evolved up to the medieval period with the schism between the Orthodox and Catholic churches and beyond. It is proposed that there was dogmati...

This paper explores how the architectural expression of orthodoxy in the Eastern churches was transferred to Europe before the Crusades and then reinforced through the Crusaders’ adoption of the triple-apsed east end “in the Syrian Taste” in the Holy Land. Previously, I have shown how it can be deduced from the archaeological remains of churches fr...

As published in the final reports by the College of Wooster and Sydney University, the dating and analysis of the excavated remains of the three churches and their associated finds at Pella, Jordan, display some puzzling aspects. This paper argues that, in these reports, two of the churches appear to have been dated up to a century later than they...

In the wake of a Greece-inspired coup against the Greek Cypriot President of Cyprus in 1974, the Turkish military occupied the northern third of the island and continues to do so. Ethnic communities are still separated: Greek Cypriots moved to the south and Turkish Cypriots to the north. This paper covers issues raised by the bi-communal conservati...

There is plenty of evidence that recycling buildings is not only an energy-efficient option, but also a valuable contribution to social and economic sustainability.

Many scholars of Byzantine architecture have theorised about the reasons for church form and structure, with most relating them to sources in pagan architecture or local traditional construction methods (Krautheimer, Crowfoot, Ward-Perkins, Mango and Hill)); to aspects of provincialism, regional independence or location peripheral to empire (Megaw,...
