Erdogan made a promise to Putin in connection with the conversion of Hagia Sophia into a mosque


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart made a promise to keep Christian shrines in the Hagia Sophia, and also guaranteed access for everyone to this magnificent architectural structure. This was reported by the Kremlin press service.


Vladimir Putin drew Erdogan’s attention to a wide public outcry caused by reports from Turkish authorities about the conversion of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul from a museum to a mosque. The head of the Republic of Turkey, in response, assured Putin that tourists will have access to the temple, and the integrity of Christian shrines will be preserved.

On July 10, the Turkish State Council decided that Hagia Sophia from a museum would turn into a mosque. The deputy head of the international committee of the Federation Council of Russia Andrey Klimov emphasized that the decision to change the status of the cathedral belongs to the canonical territory of the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, who at one time took part in the schism of the church in Ukraine and created a number of problems for the Russian Orthodox Church. The Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill expressed deep regret at the decision of the Turkish State Council.

According to the Turkish Ministry of Tourism, about 3,7 million people visited St. Sophia Cathedral last year.

      It was turned into a mosque 500 years ago! In this century there was a museum, not a temple.

        "Twenty-five again!" The cathedral was built of brick of regular shape, the technology of which appeared in the second half of the 16th century. Even from the time of the possible construction, not completely "500 years" have passed. I quote:

        Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent erected in the middle of the XVI century a giant church of Hagia Sophia. It was the FIRST temple of such a huge size. Previously, such large buildings in Tsar Grad were not built. Therefore, engineers did not yet have sufficient experience in megalithic construction. Of course, they tried their best. However, the building soon began to creep under the pressure of the monstrous mass of the dome. And here we are surprised to learn that the next Sultan, Suleiman the Magnificent, Selim II, was forced to strengthen the walls of Hagia Sophia in 1573 with the help of huge stone "bulls" that took upon themselves the load of the dome, which was bursting the walls. Thus, the following picture develops. Apparently, in the years 1550-1557, Suleiman did indeed build Hagia Sophia. This is the first experience in building huge temples. The experience was not entirely successful. After about twenty years, the temple began to spread to such an extent that Selim II had to strengthen it with “bulls”. It is hard to imagine that the church of Hagia Sophia was built or "rebuilt" in the VI century AD, stood there until the XVI century and only supposedly after a THOUSAND YEARS, began to creep under the load of the dome! But if the temple was erected in the years 1550-1557, then the picture becomes quite understandable.

        Conclusion: Suleiman the Magnificent built a Christian temple from the very beginning, and before that, of course, there could be no “mosque”, because there was no temple itself!

          Maybe the museum was originally built?

            If we assume that Islam comes from the 7th century AD, then this version is quite suitable!

          Somehow violet. Buildings are crumbling, new ones are being built on their foundations. Religions and gods are changing. How long have Zeus or Perun been able to cut the throat? When necessary, the authorities will come up with a new religion for the people. To keep the flock subordinate when not afraid of a secular court. Prince Vladimir wanted to become king and fuck the Greek princess, and he converted to Christianity. And he could have accepted Islam, only he forbids thumping ...

          Is this a quote from an alternative history of Fomenko, Nosovsky and others like them?

            And what difference does it come from? Or is there a “curse” on the use of these names? The content does not care, but cares, who spoke out, right?

              From where the quote came from, you can immediately determine what its value is. And this quote is of value only to fans of the "new chrenology." No serious scientist will take this bullshit seriously.

                Serious "scientists" are sitting in their swamp, plunging headlong into the mud, and hear only themselves, loved ones. There you should contact - good luck!

    Someone really wants to build / rebuild another temple, but they were told 2000 years ago - build a miraculous temple, because they knew very well what this venture would turn into.

      In a miraculous temple you can’t earn on the sale of candles and crosses ...

    I was in Aiye Sophia, I was in the Blue Mosque - I’m sure that nothing bad will happen to Sophia, but the trend is clear. The most powerful country in Islam is no longer secular; the next step is an amendment to the constitution on religion. It's a question of time.
