St. John the Baptist

This picture of St. John the Baptist was taken shortly before the fresco was cleaned and consolidated in the summer of 2003 and is located facing east on the pillar adjoining the west wall.

The small, centrally-planned church of St. John the Baptist in Idleti dates from C5th-C6th and is an unusual building suggesting the architects were experimenting with different forms as the dome, which is hemispherical on the interior, is in a square drum that rests on the crossing of the central space. This centrality has now been lost by the addition of a disproportionately large single storied narthex to the west.
