Protesters Pray For Turkey’s Hagia Sophia To Become A Mosque
Protesters pray in front of the Hagia Sophia museum in Istanbul, Turkey, early Saturday, to show their desire that it be turned into a mosque. It has served as the exalted seat of two faiths since its vast dome and lustrous gold mosaics first levitated above Istanbul in the 6th Century: Christendom’s greatest cathedral for 900 years and one of Islam’s greatest mosques for another 500. Today, the Hagia Sophia is Turkey’s most-visited monument, whose formally neutral status symbolizes the secular nature of the modern Turkish state.
