This book is good for understanding the history and the background of the Hagia Sophia. It explains it was constructed and it's accompanied by wonderful plans and photos to go with it.

Without this book, I would never have been able to construct this 3D model of this great Cathedral.

If you are an enthusiast in history, architecture, and the Byzantines, this book is for you. Highly recommended. Enjoy.

Excellent text, fine illustrations, but bad binding 12 Mar. 2001
By Max A. Wickert - Published on
Format: Paperback
Exaustively researched, excruciatingly detailed, and competently illustrated, this is still the best book I know on the subject, although an update to include color illustrations would much improve it. However, the paperback binding is sadly inadequate--my copy fell apart when I opened it...

a must for ecclesial, historical and architectural buffs. 23 Oct. 1998
By Fr. Dennis Brickle ( - Published on
Format: Paperback
A bit technical at times but very interesting overall. Excellent photos and elevations. Plus shows how the Church was originally appointed for Orthodox/Catholic Christian sacred use. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Almost a top-notch book 24 Oct. 2004
By Mayor of Tateville - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is one of the most thorough books about the Hagia Sophia church ever printed. However, it lacked a few important things. First, it would be better as a hardcover. Second, it could have used some 3d renderings of what Justinian's church looked like before the Ottoman conquest. Finally, ALL the pictures are in BLACK AND WHITE! Still a good buy, but do your best to get it at a deal.
