Karabas Church, Cappadocia

Karabas Church, located in Soganli (Cappadocia), was built in the 6th century. The Church and the walls were rebuilt between the 11th and 13th centuries. In the beginning it was decorated with simple stripes and patters. Nevertheless, later it was adorned with icons, which were painted with earth colours during the 11th century. The Church’s walls depict the life of Christ, as well as other Saints, following the iconographic tradition of the Eastern Orthodox Church.
