Rebranding Hagia Sophia is A 5-minute video presentation about the rebranding of Hagia Sophia located in Istanbul. Istanbul is a city that has been transformed, appropriated and rebranded. Hagia Sophia is a 15-centuries-old building that has been continuously 
rebuilt, rebranded, and repurposed. Hagia Sophia’s influence, both architecturally and liturgically, has been widespread and enduring in the Orthodox, Catholic, and 
Muslim worlds alike.
