Athens Virtual Reality Theater Presents Hagia Sophia History

Hagia_SophiaThe 1,500-year-old history of Hagia Sophia, the iconic world cultural heritage site and the most spectacular Orthodox cathedral in eastern Christendom, is showcased in a new 45-minute show at the Hellenic Cosmos Cultural Centre’s dome-shaped Virtual Reality Theatre, ‘Tholos’, in Athens.
The interactive presentation tells the cathedral’s history which starts in 532, when Eastern Roman Emperor Justinian commissioned the temple to architects Anthemios and Isidorus, and weaves in elements of subsequent Byzantine history and culture.
The presentation explores the challenges faced by the architects in carrying out their ground-breaking and ambitious construction, the problems they had to overcome, and also shines light on the intricate decorations of the interior.
Details on the days and hours of screenings are available at www.hellenic-cosmos.gr
