Commonly referred to simply as Nerezi, the church is distinguished as a foundation built by a member of the imperial family, decorated by some of the best artists of the period, and crowned by five domes in emulation of famous buildings of the Byzantine capital, Constantinople.

Thus, although located on the Byzantine periphery, in what is now the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Nerezi stands as an important testimony to twelfth-century Constantinopolitan artistic and architectural trends. Its significance becomes even greater considering that, uniquely among its contemporaries, Nerezi is preserved virtually intact.

This book represents the first effort to study Nerezi comprehensively. In six successive chapters it examines different aspects of the building: its historical and social context, its architectural design, its sculpture, and its cycle of mural painting.

In addressing these varied facets, the book attempts to relate the different components of the building both to one another, and to the relevant contemporary Byzantine monuments. Thus, in its scope, the book extends the boundaries of a traditional monograph and encompasses both the study of the church and a contextual analysis of the historic, social and cultural trends ot the period. In addition, this study introduces the complete visual documentation of the church. A series of architectural monuments, drawings and photographs of the decoration, as well as documentary evidence related to the rstoration of Nerezi, are presented here for the first time.

German description: Die Kirche von St. Panteleimon at Nerezi ist ein bedeutendes Monument der Byzantinischen Kunst. Die Qualitat der Architektur und der Malerei findet keine Parallelen in den erhaltenen Monumenten des 12. Jahrhunderts. Der Band erschliesst erstmals ein wichtiges Monument der byzantinischen Kunst. Die Kirche, Stiftung eines Mitglieds der kaiserlichen Familie der Komnenen, ist bedeutend nicht nur wegen der ungewohnlichen Architektur, sondern vor allem wegen der herausragenden Wandmalereien. Die Autorin gibt ausfuhrliche Hinweise zum Kontext der Stiftung, erlautert die historischen Hintergrunde und befasst sich mit Stil und Ikonographie der aussergewohnlich qualitatvollen Fresken.

Ergebnis ihrer Untersuchungen ist der Nachweis der engen Bezogenheit des Bildprogramms auf die Architektur und der darin stattfindenden Liturgie. In dieser Gesamtsicht auf das Monument werden wesentliche Momente der Gestaltung byzantinischer Bildprogramme deutlich. Wissenschaftlicher Text, Grundrisse, Plane und zahlreiche, auch farbige Abbildungen dokumentieren das Bauwerk umfassend.
