Welcome to the Hagia Sophia History of Art and Architecture Blog. This blog was created for the Department of Art History at Portland State University for a class on Byzantine Art History entitled The Age of Justinian, taught by Professor Anne McClanan.

The Hagia Sophia Art and Architecture Blog features information about the design and construction; dates and details about Emperor Justinian and the early days of the church; a video about the dome; information and photos of the mosaics, marbles and other stones; and other bits of art history as it relates to this church. For questions  write to hagiasophiablog@gmail.com.

I hope you enjoy the blog!
