Church of Saint John the Baptist in Kritsa
(1 Vote)

The single-nave church of Saint John the Baptist (Agios Ioannis) is located in the cemetery of Kritsa. Its interior was frescoed in 1359-1360 at the expense of Ioannis Skordilis and its pictorial program is retained fragmentary. We distinguish scenes from the Evangelical cycle, the life of Christ, and ten scenes from the life of John the Baptist.

Of particular interest to the west wall is the depiction of the Second Coming, where among the sinners we can discern bishops of the Roman Catholic Church.
