One of my favorite places! Saint Mark’s Basilica is a cathedral located in the city of Venice, Italy. It is one of the most beautiful cathedrals of the city and is famous because of its uniqueness in terms of the wealth and the magnificent interior. This cathedral is a living example of the Byzantine Architecture. The cathedral is situated on the St. Marks Square.

The Byzantine empire also marked a more salient feature called abstract or anti-naturalistic character miniatures of the 6th century. This is a more abstract and symbolic nature of Byzantine art. If classical art was marked by the attempt to create representations that mimicked reality as closely as possible, Byzantine art seems to have abandoned this attempt in favor of a more symbolic approach.
Rebula Gospel: Created in the 6th century. One of the earliest christian manuscripts. It is a Illuminated Syriac Gospel Book. Defined by bright colors, movement, drama, and expressionsism the Rebula Gospel holds a significant place in art history.
The Rabbula Gospels, or Rabula Gospels, an illuminated Syriac Gospel Book, was completed in 586 at Monastery of St. John of Zagba, which, although traditionally thought to have been in Northern Mesopotamia, is now thought to have been in the hinterland between Antioch and Apamea. It was signed by its scribe, Rabbula, about whom nothing else is known. The text is the Peshitta version of the Syriac translation of the Gospels.

Hagia Sophia Built on the site of a 4th century church, of which nothing remains, the Hagia Sophia has been a focal point in Istanbul (formerly Constantinople) ever since. The great church is now a museum but it wasn’t always so: for centuries it served as a pillar of the Greek Orthodox Church and then as an Islamic Mosque.
One of Justinian's architectural achievements was the huge church of Hagia Sophia.
The Hagia Sophia that can be seen today was built between 532 and 537 and is one of the greatest surviving examples of Byzantine architecture

Mausoleum of Galla Placidia. I know it's not technically a church, but I liked the mosaic and the prevailing theme of blues.
RAVENNA, Italy: displays a blend of Graeco-Roman tradition with Christian innovations. It was established in the reign of Augustus as the port of Classis. Following the barbarian invasions which destroyed Rome, the emperor Honorius made Ravenna his capital. His sister, Galla Placidia, lived in Ravenna during her widowhood in the early 5th century & made it a centre of Christian art.
The new commandment of Jesus, ”Love one another as I have love you’ calls each one of us to be a good shepherd, a caring, giving, concerned and involved person, a person aware of and involved in easing the pains of those around us.

)[The finding of Moses, Dura Europos Synagogue, West Wall, Wall painting, 245 A.D] The Third-century Dura Europos synagogue paintings represent the earliest continuous narrative cycle of biblical images known in art. There is a nude figure standing in the water and holding a child. The figure has been identified as the Egyptian princess standing in the Nile, saving the child Moses. (Gutmann, 25)

El Arco de Constantino (en italiano, Arco di Costantino) es un arco del triunfo que se encuentra entre el Coliseo y la colina del Palatino, en Roma. Se irguió para conmemorar la victoria de Constantino I el Grande en la batalla del Puente Milvio, el 28 de octubre de 312, y a otros emperadores anteriores. Dedicado en 315, es el más moderno de los arcos triunfales alzados en la Roma Antigua, de los que difiere por haberse construido gracias al expolio de edificios anteriores.
