Imrahor Mosque Istanbul

Imrahor Mosque Istanbul
İmrahor Camii or Mosque is the former Church of St John of Studius built in 463.


It was connected to the monastery of the akoimetai or “unsleeping” and whose monks prayed in relay around the clock. They lived by the strict rules of St. Basil, where even melancholy was considered to be a sin, and were required to chant “We shall die” repeatedly to keep the presence of death before them. They also transcribed books for mass circulation and monks from other countries would come here to learn the trade.  

It became famous through Abbot Theodore, a Byzantine Greek monk and outspoken defender of icons and images, which had been banned at the time, was also a strong critic of the Byzantine court. He built the monastery into a major scholarly centre and died in exile on the Princes’ Islands but the monastery’s reputation continued and became home to the University of Constantinople in the 15th century. Another claim to fame is that in 1042 the tyrant Michael V took refuge here but was discovered, dragged from the altar and blinded.  
Although the church was originally sumptuously decorated there is little evidence of this in the simple structure that it is today.


The mosque is located in Yedikule section of Istanbul .
