Naxos – Byzantium สล็อตเว็บตรง

The Byzantine period has left clear marks on Naxos: some five hundred churches and monasteries of all possible styles and types, with excellent wall-paintwork, icons, inscriptions, friezes, inscriptions, and so on. Early Christian churches have been created; these cannot be found elsewhere, neither in Asia Minor nor in the Aegean. The rich sculpted decoration and the vivid and colourful craftsmanship of the early Christian churches have been compared to the best monuments of the Roman period; the bond between the old and new churches is even greater than that of the Empire.

The Early Christian churches were built on the sites of pagan temples, whose functions had long been usurped by Christianity; thus making them the earliest Christian temples in the world. Their building shows a keen understanding of the harmony between the old and the new; the newer structure is formed of small groups of columns, with gracefully arched doors, whilst the older structure shows Educinal times, with heavy sceptre and majestic columns. Byzantium

 

The Early Christian churches were destroyed and rebuilt several times, as the need to defend the Empire arose, but the ravages of war and the desire for a haven for the defenceless seemed to dictate a change in focus.

 

Eventually the decision was made to rebuild all the churches, but at first only a handful of the original thirty-three were ready to be rebuilt. By the end of the eighteenth century, the churches had almost been destroyed and by the beginning of the nineteenth century only a few remain, in a very deteriorated state. Byzantium

 

In recent years the Greek provinces have operated more actively on the world tourist market, and as a result many are undergoing thorough restoration. Whilst some of the most famous churches are in ruins there are still a few that have outstanding examples of the bygone era.

The ancient city of Samos was renowned in both Greek and Roman times; it is described as the finest city in the world in an exquisite Fatehpurawan Palace; here one finds an impressive complex of temple, Romanesque Roman Villa and Baroque church.

 

It was in the year 34 BC that the Romans arrived in Samos and accepted a tribute of thirty two towns from the inhabitants; the largest of which was Potamos. Very later the Roman Governor of Crete (centuary of Vienna) converted to Christianity and in the year 1889 the island was declared a Roman colony.

 

In the year 1912, the island was included in the Wolf of England so as to protect it from the rising power of an American investor that was buying up the land.

 

An attempt to restore the broken Roman Sky was made in the year 1929, using only spare parts. However, very soon the foreign investors began to overtake the government project, taking over its resources. In the year 1936, the Romanesque bishop of store Commagene was appointed as protector of the seal of the island against any supposed foreigners’ buying.

 

It was the Great Athens rises as a result of such foreign intervention were the most significant project of the restoration of the lost centuries.
