    Kuvaus :

    “… On the intersection [of Atatürk Cad. and Kılıçarslan Cad. (also called Mazharbey Cad.)] stand the ruins of the Haghia Sophia, the principal place of worship in Byzantine Nicaea. Excavations in the mid-1930s revealed that the original church was built in the 6th C. in the reign of Justinian. It was in that church that the seven sessions of the Seventh Ecumenical Council were held in September/October 787. 350 bishops and many monks met there under the presidency of the Patriarch Tarasius, their deliberations frequently inflamed as some of the wilder Iconodules tried to condemn not only Iconoclasm in general, but individual Iconoclasts in particular, whether or not they had abjured their heresy. With much difficulty and the exercise of great diplomacy, moderation in the end prevailed.”
