Content and structure area

Scope and content

Contains photographs and other types of material related to Hagia Sophia. Many photographs are copies of images that exist elsewhere in the collection, and some may be from the Byzantine Institute. The contents for this subseries were probably assembled to be sent to Rowland J. Mainstone in 1969, but it is unclear whether all the images were sent at that time. Mainstone had intended to collaborate with Van Nice on a text volume of structural analysis to accompany the second installment of plates. However, this collaborative text was never completed.
