The Deesis Mosaic (The Entreaty) in the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul is perhaps the best preserved and most perfectly crafted of all the mosaics that have been uncovered there. The Hagia Sophia, pictured below, was built in stages dating back to the 500 AD period. For hundreds of years, it was the world’s largest cathedral. The mosaic itself probably dates to about 1250 AD and stands as a tenacious reminder that the gospel still stands even though the symbols of it have remained hidden in the walls of what has been a mosque for the
past few centuries.
Would love to hear thoughts and comments you have about this extraordinary mosaic preservation depicting the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ! And if you want more information about Him, I would love to get that to you as well! Thanks for dropping by this site!
