It is usually a half circle shape that portrayed various Biblical events or even scary images to convince people to believe in Jesus Christ, attend church, and obey the church. Since the narrations were located above the door, every person who entered saw them and took something individual away.

Byzantine Period Part II Byzantine mosaics were on the walls and ceiling rather than the floors like the Romans. Gold, red, blue, and green were prominent. Mosaics included representations of Christ or various Biblical narratives. Being positioned on the wall and ceiling, they were visible to all and gave a heavenly feel to the space. The Virgin Mary was a common motif within an apse. The images helped convey emotions and stories to people who could not necessarily read them for themselves.

Byzantine Period Part I Pendentive- "a method used to connect a dome to a square base" (Ireland, glossary).  A pendentive resembles a groin vault in that it is supported by arched columns on four sides, but the square base fades up into the dome in an arch form rather than a square base with a dome on top. The dome itself rests on the triangular portion of the corner between the arches of the supports and the dome. This design was invented by the people of the Byzantine period.
