Church of the Holy Apostles Istanbul

Church of the Holy Apostles Istanbul
The Church of the Holy Apostles in Constantinople, today’s Fatih Istanbul , was one of the most significant churches in the Christian world and is of great historical importance although very little of it has survived to this day.  

History

The Church of the Holy Apostles was originally
constructed by Constantine the Great and was rebuilt by Emperor Justinian and used as the burial place for Byzantine Emperors and Patriarchs of Constantinople from the 4th to the 11th century.  The Church of the Holy Apostles once held relics of the Christian Saints Andrew, Luke, Timothy, John Chrysostom and Gregory the Theologian and unfortunately during the 1204 Fourth Crusades the church was completely ransacked and then collapsed during a huge earthquake.

Fatih Mosque

In 1461 Mehmed the Conqueror demolished what was left of the church and built the Fatih Mosque over its foundations using remains of the original church that included parts of columns and stone blocks for the new foundations.

Column of Flagellation

One of the most important relics taken from the Church of the Holy Apostles is the Column of Flagellation where Christ was bound and flogged and is today preserved in the Patriarchal Church of St. George in Istanbul and other relics from here are held in the Treasury of St. Mark's Basilica in Venice.
