Tomb of St. Loukas
Monastery of Hosios Loukas, Phokis, katholikon, early 11th century
This tomb, known as a wonder-working tomb, includes a rectangular sarcophagus, which housed the relics of St. Loukas the Younger, a local hermit who died in 953. The tomb was built in the north transept of the katholikon. Since this transept is connected both with the exonarthex of the church of the Theotokos, an earlier church on the site, and with the naos of the katholikon, the tomb was easily approached by the two streams of pilgrims without them clashing with one another.
