    Description :

    “A church complex that still stands in Istanbul, the Pammakaristos or Fethiye Camii, recalls the patronage of yet another noblewoman, Maria Doukaina Komnene Braaina Palaiologina, the wife of the protostrator Michael Doukas Glabas Tarchaneiotes. In the late thirteenth century Maria collaborated with her husband in the restoration of the Pammakaristos monastery, originally built in the twelfth century. Upon the death of the protostrator ca. 1305, Maria took the veil as the nun Martha, probably in the convent tes Glabaines which is generally presumed to have founded. She also established a chapel annex to the Pammakaristos church as a mausoleum for her husband and other family members, and had it adorned with mosaics.”
