Abstract

On July 10, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan declared that Istanbul's famed Hagia Sophia, which was a Christian cathedral for centuries, then a mosque, and is now a museum, will be converted back into a mosque. This move was not motivated by religious fervor. It was a calculated political act that conforms to Erdoğan's broader agenda.
