A detailed view of the Transfiguration of Jesus in the center of the image above the roundels on the south wall of the 14th century Church of the Resurrection of Christ in Berea/Verroia. Below Jesus are three frightened disciples—from left to right, one recoiling in fear, and the center one prostrate facing away from Jesus, and on the right one doing a back flip(!) with his mouth covered!
Reading the whole fresco from left to right visible are: Jesus walking on water (John 6), the transfiguration (Matt 17; Mark 9), and the raising of Lazarus (John 18).
There are over 50 Byzantine Churches in Verria/Verroia. In the Church of the Resurrection of Christ there are some very well preserved frescos by George Kaliergis, one of the great painters of the 14th century.
