Declared in its heyday to be “The Jewel of Christendom,” Hagia Sophia has had a long career as both an Orthodox and Catholic church, a Moslem mosque, and a museum. The lecture examines the building’s construction, numerous re-buildings and repairs, and its refurbishings with each new conqueror of Constantinople.
