The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise

The author of the book of that title “debunks Turkey’s attempted justifications for changing the status of the Hagia Sophia into a mosque” here — Historian debunks faulty analogy between the Hagia Sophia and Cathedral of Cordoba.

The argument in a nutshell:

    The site where the Cathedral of Cordoba stands is a Christian site dating back to the sixth century, and with a Christian building or buildings on it to boot…. A true analogy with the history of the Cathedral of Cordoba would be to turn the site of Hagia Sofia and the building back into what it was before the Muslim conquest, namely a Christian site with one of the greatest churches ever built—the Basilica of Hagia Sofia, Holy Wisdom.
