This dataset contains videos of the digital mesh model and the point cloud model of the Studenica Church scans.

A major world heritage site on the UNESCO list, the Studenica church in Serbia unites Romanesque and Byzantine ideas of sacred space. The research aims to test the transfer of architectural knowledge and whether the dome that scoops the light in shafts – which remains technically a demanding task in modern construction – points to the applied medieval knowledge of geometry, physics and optics. This research features the Studenica church as a model for advanced studies of medieval architecture that often lacks textual sources about its creation or training of its architects.
