Title: The Church Ruins Neighboring Divriği’s Citadel Walls
Authors: Merzian, Harry C.
Issue Date: 2002
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: The Author provides a first-hand description of the architecture and decoration of some church remains, representing the only Christian architecture surviving in Divriği, a well known, mainly Islamic site of Anatolia. From the comparative analysis of the details of the architecture and its decoration, the Author draws the conclusion that these ruins were probable of an Armenian Chalcedon Church or a Greek Orthodox Church.Its original floor plan was most likely very similar to a specific typology of Middle Byzantine churches, studied by S. Ćurčić, that includes satellite (possibly funerary) chapels. Due to Yâkût’s reference to the church near the Paulician Castle and Yâkût’s death in 1229, the Author situates the erection date of the church no later than the 13th century.
