Further Remarks on Transfiguration in Shivta

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The present paper explores the remnants of the Transfiguration scene, the wall painting in the South Church at Shivta, a Byzantine settlement in the Negev Desert which ceased to exist sometime in the eighth or ninth century. The study reveals long-forgotten early Byzantine iconography, which survived in the remote provincial desert settlement but testifies to strong ties with post-iconoclastic iconography of the scene.
