Paperback. 52 pages. Dimensions: 8.2in. x 5.7in. x 0.2in.Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Weltgeschichte - Frhgeschichte, Antike, Note: 1, 3, Europa-Universitt Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The Byzantine church Hagia Sophia has been marvelled about for its size and beauty throughout many centuries.

It argues that the shape of the building not only represents a singular step in the process of the architectural development of sacral christian buildings but that it reflects upon political ideology and liturgical developments in the specific context of the empire of Byzantium. Along these lines it is perceived as a mirror of cultural dispositions of the late antiquity. The paper examines precursory buildings types which lead to the architectural design of the Hagia Sophia. It identifies the church as an ingenious hybrid of longitudinal and central building shapes. In the course of combining the two former separate types a new specific kind of space has been created. It is characterised by the increasingly intense interconnection of the religious and imperial power during the reign of Justinian I. This is observed by examining both architectural as well as functional aspects of the building.
