Turkey’s Catholic bishops won’t contest plan to turn Hagia Sophia into a mosque
June 19, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: Dedicated in 537, Hagia Sophia (Encyclopaedia Britannica article) has been the cathedral of the Patriarch of Constantinople (until 1453), a mosque (until 1931), and a museum (since 1935). The statement puts the Turkish bishops at odds with the Greek Orthodox Church, which has spoken out against the plan.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
