A Spatial Mimesis of Sacred Wisdom: Hagia Sophia

One of the magicful wonders of the East is the ancient temple HAGIA SOPHIA indeed. In fact it was build in the name of God, but today’s political issues and religious disputes urge this intention to serve this magnificant structure to serve as a “touristic” place open for visit.
As Orthodox basilica, HagiaSophia was built on a pagan temple (not certain); then for a decade during crusader invasion served as Catholic church, and after Islamic conquest by Ottoman Turks, the basilica was converted to a mosque. That means around two thusand years this building has been serving to several faiths…

I do see that one who like to read about Hagia Sophia may go through net to get the best information ;) Wiki is the best ;)
