The first comprehensive attempt to reconstruct from archaeological, liturgical, and historical sources the ceremonial use of Early Byzantine architecture. The archaeological remains of a dozen pre-Iconoclastic churches in Constantinople are examined, and the characteristic patterns of planning revealed are interpreted in the light of the Early Byzantine liturgy. A new approach to Byzantine architecture, which is studied here in the critical first phase of its development.
