Jasmina S. Ćirić (Univerzitet u Beogradu): Portals and Translation: Meaning of Portals in the Late Byzantine Architectural Setting

The paper addresses the issues of the construction, translation, and transformation through the meaning of portals and state of the believer in the church within Constantinopolitan examples, and their echoes on the Balkans. As suggested by the roots of the word transformation “to change in the form and appearance” or to carry across, there is the aspect of crossing boundaries and slippage in perception. The meaning is translated from one symbolic space to another so that the body becomes modified with movements of Wisdom when perceived from different vantage points.
