This paper looks at changes over time in the construction procedure of ceilings of cross-in-square churches, one of the most common architecture in the Middle Byzantine period (9th–12th centuries), focusing on the three-dimensional characteristics of all churches within Byzantine territories. The churches are classified according to the arrangement of arches, floor plan, and the number of transverse arches on each corner bay. Two principal construction procedures are evident throughout the Middle Byzantine period: procedure likes a centralised church building and procedure likes a domed basilica building. Moreover, a mixture or hybrid of these two emerged in the 12th century.
