Hagia Sophia, the great Orthodox cathedral of the Byzantine empire in Constantinople (Istanbul after the Turkish conquest.) The Hagia Sophia is one of the architectural wonders of the world, and is a museum nowadays. ArtStor has some great images of the Hagia Sophia. For articles and books on the Hagia Sophia, Orthodoxy, and the Byzantines, JSTOR, Project Muse and Historical Abstracts would all be good for articles, and then our catalog for books.
