ST DONATUS CHURCH

"The church of St. Donatus is a church located in Zadar, Croatia.

Its name refers to Donatus of Zadar, who began construction on this church in the 9th century and ended it on the northeastern part of the Roman forum.[2] Originally named (and dedicated to) the church of the Holy Trinity[3], in the 15th century it was renamed the Church of St. Donatus.[4]

Church of St. Donatus is the largest Pre-romanesque building in Croatia. It is also one of the most impressive churches of centralised type of the Carolingian period in Europe. The circular church, formerly domed, has three apses and an ambulatory around the central area, surmounted by circular gallery. The circular shape is typical of the early Byzantine age in Dalmatia."

Jadis couverte d'un dôme, elle s'organise en trois absides et un déambulatoire circulaire autour d'une salle centrale surmontée d'une galerie, elle-même circulaire.

La forme circulaire est typique de l'architecture byzantine en Dalmatie..."
