Description

Join EMBCA, for a stimulating panel discussion commemorating the dedication of Emperor Justinian I’s grand edifice, that over time has been Patriarchal Cathedral, Mosque and Museum. Aghia Sophia more than any other surviving building from late antiquity, symbolizes the crossing and meeting of cultures, religions, civilizations and regional hegemons. 1,500 years after its dedication, it continues to be a contested reference point and emblem of the history of the Eastern Mediterranean.

In association with American Hellenic Institute (AHI) New York Business Network, and AHEPA Delphi Chapter 25.


Introduction by Louis Katsos, President EMBCA

John Fotiadis, (Moderator) Architect, Vice President, Co-Founder EMBCA
Alexander Billinis, Author
Constantine “Dean” Sirigos, Jounalist / International Commentator
