O βυζαντινός Ναός του Σωτήρος






O βυζαντινός Ναός του Σωτήρος στην Άμφισσα

Πρόκειται για ένα περίτεχνο μνημείο από τα σημαντικότερα της μέσης Βυζαντινής περιόδου.





Κατά τον MILLET το Μνημείο χρονολογείται στον 11ο μ Χ. αιώνα, ενώ από τον MEGAW χρονολογείται στο 1ο τέταρτο του 12ου μ. Χ. αιώνα. 








Τυπολογικά, ο ναός ανήκει στον τύπο του σταυροειδούς εγγεγραμμένου δικιόνιου μετά τρούλου, τύπου ιδιαίτερα διαδεδομένου στον Ελληνικό χώρο στην περίπτωση ναών μετρίου μεγέθους. Όπως όλοι σχεδόν οι μεσοβυζαντινοί ναοί της Ελλάδος έτσι και αυτός έχει στην κάτοψη σχήμα τετράγωνο (7.20 x 7.30), με ελαφρά παράγωνη χάραξη, 






Ο τρούλος είναι Αθηναϊκού τύπου, οκτάπλευρος, κεραμοσκεπής με κοίλα βυζαντινά κεραμίδια και φέρει από ένα μαρμάρινο κιονίσκο με επίθημα σε κάθε ακμή. Η σημερινή μορφή του δεν είναι η αρχική, αλλά προέρχεται από μεταγενέστερες επεμβάσεις.







Εξωτερικά, η τοιχοδομία παρουσιάζει εξαιρετική επιμέλεια στην ανατολική και βόρεια όψη και διαμορφώνεται με πλήρες πλινθοπερίκλειστο σύστημα, ενώ στη δυτική και νότια όψη είναι λιγότερο επιμελημένη με αργούς λίθους, η δε κρηπίδα στην βάση του ναού διαμορφώνεται με Spolia. Το εσωτερικό του ναού είναι σήμερα επιχρισμένο κατά το μεγαλύτερο μέρος του.

The Line








Come smell the fruit for a while
And the time, lost despair, burns to smile.







And then, tonight's the night you live your life
Tonight's the night you broke the line
Tonight's the night you live your life
I'm not surprised you broke the line.







Fear, fall inside, over style
And if life, time exist, for a while.







And then, tonight's the night you live your life
Tonight's the night you broke the line
Tonight's the night you live your life
I'm not surprised you broke the line







Everybody wants to know you quick
Nobody wants to let you die
Everybody wants to keep you nights
Nobody wants to know your mind








Everybody wants to know you quick
Nobody wants to let you die
Everybody wants to keep you nights
Nobody wants to know your mind







And then, tonight's the night you live your life
Tonight's the night you broke the line
Tonight's the night you live your life
I'm not surprised you broke the line.






Tonight's the night you live your life
Tonight's the night you broke the line
Tonight's the night you live your life
I'm not surprised you broke the line.

Swans on Glass





Running blindly
Jumping careless
Passing buildings
Concrete and glass
Over a bridge
Water flowing
Darkness my stare
White shapes on glass 






I’m turning around 

Mirrored windows
Reflected skyline
Distant structures
Captures my view





Isolation
Close behind me
Darkness my stare
White shapes on glass 







I’m turning around
Turning from the blackened shapes I turn into white 






White on new
White shapes on glass

Strange Weather




 

She'll take you back, don't make believe
You wanna think it through
I've loved before, I'll love again
I know that yours was true







Wake up slowly, there are blue skies
Cutting white lines in black matter
I see them shining through your drunken eyes
Carving silver is strange weather







I'll meet a man, we'll make a home
And travel to the deep
Of further lines with hidden dreams
The broken hearted keep





Wake up slowly, there are blue skies
Cutting white lines in black matter
I see them shining through your drunken eyes
Carving silver is strange weather






She'll take you back, don't make believe
You wanna think it through
I've loved before, I'll love again
I know that yours was true






Wake up slowly, there are blue skies
Cutting white lines in black matter
I see them shining through your drunken eyes
They only want me in strange weather








In a small room, on a naked floor
With the blinded heart of black matter
I could hear you through the front door
Carving silver is strange weather






She'll take you back, don't make believe
You wanna think it through
I've loved before, I'll love again
I know that yours was true

Bullet In The Brain







Bullet in the brain
I prefer than to remain the same






Looking back on where we used to be
Everything was clear, still I refuse to see
Hearts began to burst
The diamond turned to dust
You made me talk the pain all out of me






I know I share the blame for what's in store
I was in the wrong but weren't you in it more?
I let you use my gifts
To back your lying lips
I'll never know just what I did it for




Bullet in the brain
I prefer than to remain the same

What You Know





In a few weeks I will get time
To realise it's right before my eyes
And I can take it if it's what I want to do






I am leaving, this is starting to feel like
It's right before my eyes
And I can taste it, it's my sweet beginning






And I can tell just what you want
You don't want to be alone
You don't want to be alone




And I can't say it's what you know
But you've known it the whole time,
Yeah, you've known it the whole time







Maybe next year I'll have no time
To think about the questions to address
Am I the one to try to stop the fire?







I wouldn't test you, I'm not the best you could have attained
Why try anything?
I will get there, just remember I know








And I can tell just what you want
You don't want to be alone
You don't want to be alone








And I can't say it's what you know
But you've known it the whole time
Yeah, you've known it the whole time







And I can tell just what you want
You don't want to be alone
You don't want to be alone







And I can't say it's what you know
But you've known it the whole time
Yeah, you've known it the whole time 







And I can tell just what you want
You don't want to be alone
You don't want to be alone







And I can't say it's what you know
But you've known it the whole time
Yeah, you've known it the whole time

Bird On The Buffalo




So convince the others of the change in the wind
The watchtower man turned and whispered me some things
He said we don't sleep stuck in the dream
Shot my baby with an arrow in the wing
Wounded cut bent and scarred we got together
Lost in love in your broke down car
Through stormy weather







Like the bird on the buffalo
Like the bird on the buffalo







So convince the others of the change in the wind
The lighthouse man turned and whispered me some things
We don't sleep stuck in the dream
Shot my baby with an arrow in the wing
Us you me and them we got together
We got together and we did our thing
Through stormy weather





Like the bird on the buffalo
Like the bird on the buffalo
