New elements of the painted program in the narthex at Nerezi
The fresco paintings in the narthex of the St. Panteleimon church in Nerezi are only partly preserved, and by their thematic character, they can be divided into 3 groups: the first group consists of fragments of the Life cycle of St. Panteleimon, the second group consists of remnants of the Deesis composition painted over the entrance to the naos. The third group consists of fragments of the scenes in the first zone on the north end of the east wall, as well as the fragment of the imperial scene, which can be linked with the donor composition which was painted in the second zone on the north end of the east wall.
