Abstract
The Church of St Elijah in Vucitrn was built from 1823 to 1834, when it was consecrated. It was built by the people of the parish, on the spot where they had buried liturgical objects few years ago, which then served as an evidence of the existence of an earlier church for gaining the permission from the authorities. It is a single-nave church, built of a cut stone, with its interior divided into the sanctuary, the nave and the narthex. With its architectural features as the gallery above the narthex designated for women, gable roof and the method of construction that was achieved for the church to be dug in the ground to a certain height, this temple is a typical example of church architecture in the framework of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in the Ottoman Empire. For understanding this art, the achievement of Debar's zoography's (painters) in its decorating is just as important. Zoography Dico from the village of Tresonce painted iconostasis in 1846, while his disciple Blaza Damjanovic, painted the church in 1871. Since the church was twice burned and vandalized, in 1999 and 2004, when the wall paintings were destroyed, iconostasis was transferred to the church of the Banjska monastery. The main characteristic of the iconographic scheme and the visual poetics of their icons is the emphasis on tradition and the respect for the dogmatic character of icons. Also, they follow the zoographic model of icon painting which developed in Italo-Cretan workshops in the XVI century, combining with baroque and rococo decorative solutions. The context of construction and forms of the interior design of the church has given a significant example of the nineteenth century art in this part of the Ottoman Empire. It is a paradigm of specific mode of construction that was adorned with a dominant model of religious painting of the time.
