Artist's Description

The Basilika of Agios Titos (St. Titus) in the old quarter of Heraklion on the Greek Island of Crete is an important monument to Christianity.
The church was originally built by the Byzantines in 962 A.D. and was later converted by the Ottomans to a Mosque. Destroyed by an earthquake in 1856, it was rebuilt by the Turks as a Mosque and later the Cretans converted it into a Greek Orthodox church in 1923.
The church has contained the skull of Saint Titus since its return from Venice in 1966. The Venetians had taken the skull with them when the city fell to the Turks in 1669.
