The large and impressive Byzantine church known as Fatih Camii was built at Enez in Turkish Thrace was first published by Eyice in 1969. Since that time, it has been noted by Vango and Vocotopoulos, but has otherwise received little scholarly attention. The church is not securely dated and its original dedication is unknown, but its size alone indicates that the foundation was accorded importance. The plan measures approximately 21 x 38 meters, and is thus larger than almost all of the Middle and Late Byzantine churches of Constantinople.
