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.
