Hagia Sophia


An excellent brief treatment of the fascinating history of this greatest church of the first Christian millenium can be found here, on Byzantines.net, an unofficial site representing the Byzantine Catholic Church in communion with the Pope of Rome. Many photographs with special attention to magnificent mosaics inside the church are here, in a five-page gallery on the website of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.
