Hagia Sophia: Architecture, Structure and Liturgy of Justinian's Great Church

Front Cover
Thames and Hudson, 1997 - Architecture - 288 pages
An enormously detailed and insightful study of the architecture, structure and liturgy of Justinian's Great Church in Istanbul. The examination of the structure enables Mainstone to disentangle the various rebuildings and restorations, lots of discussion of the design of this most massive of constrcuctions but he is equally concerned with the ways in which it was used, elements of symbolism and the influence of liturgy and the Emperors.
