Description

Byzantine architecture may be described in terms of four major stylistic currents, each of which includes numerous subcurrents and local developments. The first is characterized by simple, clearly defined, self-contained geometric units, usually organized about a dominating axis that is either vertical, as in circular buildings such as S Costanza (see ROME, §VI, 18(I)), or horizontal, for instance in basilicas such as S Sabina (422–32), Rome.
