San Giovanni Evangelista, Ravenna, Italy
Architecture Library, Hesburgh Libraries
A church in Ravenna, Italy, built in the fifth century AD. In the Middle Ages the Benedictines annexed to it an important monastery. In the 14th century both the church and monastery were renovated in the Gothic style. The church was almost totally destroyed in World War II and has since been heavily restored.
