About the project
“Visualizing the Sacred: A Register of Academic Painters, Icon-Painters and Wood-Carvers Who Worked in the Churches of Sofia (1878–1944)” is a project of the Institute of Art Studies implemented with the financial support of Sofia’s Culture – 2021 Program. In the first stage of the project a digital register was made providing systematized information about academic painters, icon-painters and wood-carvers who have worked in the churches on the territory of the present-day city of Sofia in the period from Bulgaria’s Liberation to the mid-20th century. The second component of the platform is a digital library arranged around the topic of Christian culture in Bulgaria during the same period.
