The Athens Academy’s inventory of Byzantine wall-paintings of the Dodecanese

The inventory of the Byzantine Wall-Paintings of Greece is the main research project presently carried out by the Service of Documentation of the Byzantine Monuments of Greece of the Athens Academy. The project started being carried out in 1982. The general inventory comprises separate units that deal thoroughly with the inventoring of the decorated monuments of each region of Greece. The position of the Dodecanese in the inventory is quite important: 194 wall-painted monuments have been recorded so far that exhibit 225 published layers of painting, numbers quite impressive as such, notwithstanding that they are not the final ones.
