This study attempts to reinvision the life of the Greek Orthodox
community in Cappadocia in the thirteenth century under Selcuk
Rule. Focusing on the evidence provided by four churches; Karsi
Kilise in Gulsehir, Canavar Kilise in Soganli, Agacalti Kilise in
Ihlara, and Kirk Dam Alti Kilise in Belisirma, the study analyzes
issues of faith, identity, continuity, assimilation, and the
effects of historical events on wall decoration in cave churches of
Cappadocia. The images and inscriptions discussed provide both
examples indicating continued allegiance to Byzantine traditions
from local and faraway sources, and a willingness to incorporate
new stylistic and decorative motifs from Seljuk art.
