ST CYRICUS’ CHURCH AT WEQRO, EAST TEGRAY: A COMPLETE DESCRIPTION AND INTERPRETATION OF ITS SALIENT ARCHITECTONICS.ST CYRICUS’ CHURCH AT WEQRO, EAST TEGRAY: A COMPLETE DESCRIPTION AND INTERPRETATION OF ITS SALIENT ARCHITECTONICS. [Abstract ID: 0213-01]
The church of Cherqos Wukro, as it is commonly referred to, is in fact more correctly named Qirqos Weqro, i.e. St. Cyricus church. Together with Mika'el Amba and despite differences, it is in obvious dependence upon Abreha waAsbeha but, contrary to the two churches named, it had become almost impossible to study because of the maintenance work which, understandably, had become necessary. As it happened, the maintenance work became the occasion which allowed for a complete investigation of the church. I propose to report about the original condition of the structure and discuss particular architectonics and their liturgical rationale.
