  • Hagia Sophia: Cathedral of Wonder

The Hagia Sophia, also known as the Sanctuary of Wisdom, is an epic cathedral rising from the center of Istanbul in modern day Turkey. When Istanbul was still named Constantinople (named after Roman emperor Constantine) and under Roman rule, the enormous Hagia Sophia stood as an undeniable symbol of Christendom within the Roman Empire.

Several architectural features were employed in the building of the Hagia Sophia. The use of nascent technologies of the day, design aspects, and artistic flourishes marked the cathedral as a departure from the norm. The cathedral also maintained the traditional themes and important Christian figures which contributed to its place in the ancient and now modern imagination.

Furthermore, the Hagia Sophia was built during a time in the Roman Empire when the centralization of power under a Holy Roman Emperor was paramount, not only for political power but to perpetuate civic peace and religious propagation. The Emperor Justinian was the primary ruler of the time and responsible for this political and religious push.

Religious symbolism, art, and storytelling were also major themes in the Hagia Sophia. The artwork and architecture in and of themselves were impressive, but ultimately it was the function of these attributes in spreading Biblical belief and understanding to the masses that was most important to Rome and the church.
