If you want to discuss how the Hagia Sophia is a representation of the society in that city, you must change the name of the city to Constantinople. The building is an extraordinary monument to the people of THAT city. Current Istanbulans have often shown disregard and disrespect of anything in that city left by the Byzantines. I find it very ironic that the people of that country look to ruins of other civilizations and adopt them as their own achievements.
