May 24, 2019

Византийская империя. Ипподром. Часть современной площади Султанахмет в Стамбуле находится на месте древнего Ипподрома, строительство которого было начато ещё римским императором Септимием Севером в 203 г., когда город ещё назывался Византием. В 330—334 г.г. император Константин, создавая новую столицу, полностью перестроил Ипподром. После перестройки сооружение имело размеры около 450 метров в длину и 120 метров в ширину, а вместимость ипподрома составляла около 100 000 человек. Ипподром украшала знаменитая квадрига, украденная западными христианскими «братьями» и вывезенная в 1204 г. в Венецию (её видно на Соборе Святого Марка, фото 2,3). . На ипподроме проводились гонки колесниц. Накал страстей среди болельщиков приводил к крупным потасовкам, а иногда и бунтам. Болельщики зрелищ (гладиаторских боёв, а затем, с введением христианства, — цирков и ипподромов) как в старой Римской, так и в Восточной империях делились на несколько группировок по цветам, в частности, колесниц, за которые болели и которые ими содержались: красные (русии), белые (левки), синие (венеты), зелёные (прасины). На протяжении нескольких веков самыми крупными и влиятельными были две основные категории — «голубые» (венеты) и «зелёные» (прасины). . Обычно императоры благоволили какой-либо группировке. Анастасий I — венетам, Юстиниан Великий — прасинам, а его жена императрица Феодора в детстве, после смерти своего отца — смотрителя зверей «зелёных» — была ими отвергнута, и семье дали кров и работу «синие». Максимального влияния партии достигли в VI в. и утратили его почти полностью к X в. Применительно к Византии, для обозначения данного явления используется термин «димы» или «демы». Партии ипподрома могут рассматриваться как предшественники современных футбольных хулиганов. Византийские димы, так же как димы эллинистического и римского времени, были организациями того или иного городского квартала и района. Они выполняли там определённые хозяйственные и политические функции, следили за порядком и благоустройством своего квартала, объединяли обычно людей одной и той же профессии, которые селились обычно в одном квартале. В своей совокупности они претендовали на роль городского собрания ⬇️⬇️⬇️

May 24, 2019

Vinsensius dari Lerins, Pengaku Iman Tanggal Pesta: 24 Mei Vinsensius adalah seorang biarawan Benediktin yang hidup pada abad ke 5. Ia berasal dari kalangan bangsawan Gaul (Perancis) di Toulouse dan kemungkinan seorang perwira militer sebelum menjadi rahib di Biara Benediktin Lerins, Perancis. Tiga tahun setelah Konsili Efesus sekitar tahun 434, Vinsensius menulis Commonitorium. Dengan menggunakan nama Peregrinus ia membela hasil Konsili Efesus yang menyatakan bahwa Kristus adalah satu pribadi dan Bunda Maria adalah Bunda Allah. Ia juga menentang ajaran Nestorian yang dicetuskan oleh Patriark Nestorius dari Konstantinopel. Uskup Lyon menyebutkan Vinsensius adalah seorang kudus yang kasat mata, fasih berbicara dan berpengetahuan. Vinsensius wafat tahun 450 di Biara Benediktin St. Honoratus, Lerins, Perancis. #instakatolik #katolik #gereja #gerejakatolik #iman #biarawan #doa #biara #seminari #lerins #perancis #france #benedictine #toulouse #konstantinopel #constantinople #efesus #ephesians #catholic #catholicchurch #church #catholicism #catholicsaints #saints #santo #santosanta #love #pray #passion #brothers

May 23, 2019

The “Gate of Salutation” is on of the main entrances of the Sultan’s palace called Topkapı. It was built after the conquest of Constantinople in 1453 and became the centre of gravity of the huge Ottoman Empire. Here the Sultans lived and administered the empire surrounded by a huge court: a city within the city, impenetrable from the outside and immersed in the most unbridled luxury. It all ended with the fall of the Empire with World War I, and now in place of the court there are only thousands of visitors a day. - - - - - Istanbul, Turkey 🇹🇷 GoPro7 black - - - - - #istanbul #istanbulturkey #istanbul_hdr #turkey🇹🇷 #turkey_home #istanbulcity #constantinople #topkapipalace #islamicarchitecture #topkapisarayi #turkeylife #ottomanart #travelphotography #traveldiary #appunti #travelbook #allefaldedelkilimangiaro #sultan #turkeylife #architecturelovers #architecture #archaeology #ottomanempire #medieval #medievaltimes #neverstopexploring #andreangelucci #sikandertravels #travelbook #travelnotebook #sketchbooks

Византийская империя. Меса

May 23, 2019

Византийская империя. Меса В переводе с греческого языка Меса означает «средняя улица». Она была главой улицей Константинополя, начиналась у собора Святой Софии и шла на запад вплоть до городских стен. Меса служила местом проведения церемониальных процессий византийских императоров, а также центром торговли. Вдоль улицы тянулся ряд городских форумов и площадей. Древний маршрут Месы во многом совпадает с направлением современного проспекта в Стамбуле Divanyolu (на фото 1,2). . Отрезок между собором Святой Софии и форумом Константина (на картинках 3-5 он хорошо виден, недалеко от ипподрома, круглый) длиной 600 м назывался «Регия», т.е Имперская дорога. Именно здесь набирали ход императорские процессии, шедшие от Большого императорского дворца и площади Августеон к форуму основателя города. От форума Меса следовала к форуму Феодосия (Воловий форум), на полпути пересекаясь с большим рынком: в месте их стыка стояла высокая пирамида под названием Анемодулий («Раб ветров»). Далее, на площади Филадельфион улица раздваивалась: главная магистраль, пересекая Бычий форум и форум Аркадия, шла на запад, к Золотым воротам, где она переходила в Эгнатиеву дорогу (старая римская дорога на Рим); другая часть Месы шла на северо-запад к Адрианопольским (Харисийским) воротам (через которые турки проникли в город и захватили его), проходя через церковь Святых Апостолов (усыпальницу императоров, снесена) и, возможно, форум Львов (на фото 6 это хорошо видно). . Улица Меса была около 25 м в ширину, по обеим её сторонам тянулись дома с двухэтажными тенистыми портиками и колоннадами, где размещались лавки, в которых торговали дорогими тканями, одеждой, драгоценностями и благовониями. На площадях и форумах улицы торговали скотом, мясом, рыбой, зерном, хлебом, вином, маслом, сухофруктами, шёлком-сырцом, мылом и воском. Начиная с V в. власти всячески вели борьбу против разраставшихся торговых рядов, дабы сохранить первоначальный вид улицы. Несмотря на это, вся улица вскоре превратилась в сплошной базар длиной 1850 м, растянувшийся от собора Святой Софии до площади Филадельфион. Портики закрывали хорошо от солнца, что можно было пересечь весь Константинополь, не выходя из тени ⬇️⬇️⬇️

🔙 Great Palace Mosaic Museum, Istanbul Located near Arasta Bazaar (which I found better than the popular Grand Bazaar), lack of popularity and sign boards makes it easy to miss. Museum itself is in dire need of improvement. But visit if you are curious to see archeological finds of Byzantine period, found at Great Palace of Constantinople. Mosaics are interesting and worth a look! —————————————————————— #throwbackthursday #mosaic #museum #mosaicmuseum #istanbul #turkey #instabul #constantinople #byzantine #history #archeology #mytinyatlas #traveltagged #istanbul🇹🇷 #museums

The Harvard Art Museums have a wonderful collection of both archeological artifacts and paintings. I would recommend allowing two hours for a visit. This gold coin is a solidus, introduced on a wide scale by the Roman Emperor Constantine in the early 4th Century. This particular coin shows the head of Justinian II, the last Emperor of the Heraclean Dynasty. It was minted in 705 AD. #coins #goldcoins #gold #numismatics #coincollection #byzantine #constantinople #roman #romanempire #justinian #justinianii #solidus #harvard #harvardartmuseums #705 #4thcentury #constantine #archeologicalmuseum #archeology #historymuseum #ancienthistory #mint #legaltender #museumweek #cambridge #massachussets #boston #usa #heraclean #istanbul

ΑΣΠ Αθλητικός Σύλλογος Πέραν/Pera Sports Club/Beyoğlu Sports Club/Beyoğluspor Kulübü is one of the most historic Greek amateur sports club established in Constantinople/Κωνσταντινούπολη/Istanbul in 1884. The club still has several teams in a variety of sports and as seen in some of the photos still has a relationship with both AEK & PAOK due to their origins in the city. The president who is half Greek was happy to give me a tour around the club and welcomed me to come visit again. beyoglu_spor_kulubu #pera #paok #aek #beyoglu #istanbul #constantinople #κωνσταντινουπολη #περα #sportsclub #football #greek

Haghia Sophia: the Church of the Sacred Wisdom. When Emperor Justinian completed it he pronounced: ‘Solomon, I have surpassed thee’. Too much to see here, but in these photos you can see the ‘eye of the world’, where Emperors were crowned, and the mosaic portraits of Emperor John II Komnenos and his wife Empress Eirene (sadly behind a barrier so the photo was taken at a bit of a distance), these two being key parts of my research. Hal stands on the Empress’ gallery, and you can see the angels who are said to hold up the dome at the corners of the roof. Equally, you can see the mosaic crosses that shine through the later Ottoman decoration. #travel #medieval #istanbul #constantinople #byzantine #hagiasophia

Former Monastery of Christ Pantokrator, now the Zeyrek Mosque. Founded by Emperor John II Komnenos and his wife Empress Eirene, it was originally part of a huge philanthropic complex including a hospital, retirement home, leper colony and more. A triple church dedicated to Christ Pantokrator, the Virgin Eloisa and the Archangel Michael, it was also the burial chapel of many members of the Komnenian dynasty. Many if it’s treasures are now in Venice’s San Marco after the city was sacked by the armies of the 4th Crusade in 1204. #travel #medieval #istanbul #constantinople #byzantine #zeyrekcamii

Iconostasis of the Church of St Mary of the Mongols, last still functioning Byzantine Church. Named for a princess who wed the Mongol Khan, also known as the Church of Blood as the last heavy resistance to the Turkish conquest took place here in 1453.

The Chora Monastery - rebuilt many times, and many donors who paid for it left a mosaic to record their donation. These include Theodore Metohites (a civil servant with the incredible hat) and Isaac Komnenos. The latter is the brother of Emperor John II Komnenos, focus of my research. He was was the trusted right hand man of his brother from 1112 until 1130, when he betrayed his brother and sought to take the throne for himself. #travel #medieval #istanbul #constantinople #byzantine #choramonastery
