Pancarlık Kilesi - Beet Church

I give this church a gallery of its own because of the many pictures I took. I walked here from a church I grouped as “Unknown” with Mustafapasha.

I could not find decent information on the web, apart from this rather good text: “Pancarlik valley lies to the south of Ortahisar, and to the right of the road leading from Urgup to Mustafapasa. The church has one nave, one apse and a flat ceiling. The frescoes in this church are well preserved, and most of them are painted on a green background. At first glance it appears that two different artists were responsible for the paintings, but on closer inspection it is apparent that the same artist painted all the frescoes. In the church, the scenes from the Bible follow one another in sequence and portraits of saints in insets border these scenes on both sides. The church dates back to the first half of the 11th century.

Scenes: Prophetic Vision, Annunciation, Visitation, Proof of the Virgin, Journey to Bethlehem, Nativity, Adoration of the Magi, Joseph's Second Dream, Flight into Egypt, Massacre of the Innocents, Presentation of Jesus at the Temple, Pursuit of Elizabeth, Calling of St. John the Baptist, Baptism, Temptation of Jesus, Wedding at Cana, Miracle of the Wine, Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes, Calling of the Apostles, Healing of the Possessed, Healing the Lepers, Healing of the Disabled Woman, Raising the Daughter of Jarius, Miracle of the Fishes, Jesus and the Samaritan Woman, Transfiguration, Way of the Cross, Crucifixion, Anastasis, Ascension, Archangels Gabriel and Michael and portraits of saints in insets."

If viewers identify any of these subjects on my pictures (which I took rather haphazardly) I kindly invite them to write a comment (which I will make visible in a caption later).

I increased saturation on some pictures to make them better visible, but overall I am quite satisfied with the colours, which I think reflect the actual situation well. I state this because I saw some horrid representations elsewhere on the web.

Note I have grouped many churches in Cappadocia in one gallery.
