Cemeteries of the Greek-Orthodox in Constantinople

Cemeteries of the Greek-Orthodox in Constantinople - has not been published yet Νεκροταφεία των Ρωμιών στην Κωνσταντινούπολη (13/4/2007 v.1)

The cemeteries of the Greek-Orthodox population in Constantinople, monuments of the robustness of the Greek Orthodox population at the end of the Ottoman era, are today threatened with extinction.

Church of St. Euphemia

Church of  St. Euphemia (13/4/2007 v.1) Ναός Αγίας Ευφημίας (28/6/2007 v.1)

The church of St. Euphemia was re-discovered in 1939, when work on the nearby hippodrome exposed the structure.

The Church of Sts. Sergios and Bakchos (today Küçük Ayasofya Camii) was built by Justinian I (527 – 565) and his wife Theodora probably between 530-533 for the Monophysite community that was housed in the Hormisdas Palace at time when the imperial couple had already moved from there to the Imperial Palace (in 527). The domed octagonal nave is outlined by a continuous gallery on two floors with columns at the four corners of the nave arranged to form semi-circular niches. In this respect the...



Constantinople Mint

Constantinople Mint (29/6/2007 v.1) Νομισματοκοπείο Κωνσταντινούπολης (13/4/2007 v.1)

The mint of Constantinople displays a remarkable duration of life (326-1453). At the beginning it did not differ from other provincial mints, however, gradually joined the first place and – temporarily – the exclusiveness on state production of coins. It was the most complicated Byzantine mint regarding its organization and the quality of its products, interwoven with state financial policy and fluctuated from an excellent level (during the largest period of time), up to a bad one (mainly after...

Nea Ekklesia

Nea Ekklesia (11/2/2008 v.1) Νέα Εκκλησία (11/2/2008 v.1)

The Nea Ekklēsia is one of the most famous Constantinopolitan churches that disappeared without physical trace. Its appearance is known only through written sources and a few contemporary renderings. Its most interesting features were its five-domed structure and its quintuple dedication. The Nea’s presumable form, interior arrangement, and meaning are important to understanding the ideas defining the transformation of architecture in the Middle Byzantine period.

Yeniköy or Neochori (Nechori) is located on the European shore of the Bosporus, between the Steni (İstinye) and Therapeia (Tarabya) areas. During the 17th century the Yeniköy district was comprised of three thousand households, including three Muslim and seven Christian quarters.
