The Grand Consensus of believers of the (Middle) East - really consists of several such consensionis in which the different religions (such as the Greek Christian, Jewish, Zoroastrian and Islamic (to name the largest ones)) depend on separate creeds but in the point of historic form - are all alike (this however does not prevent them from having mutual hostility like spiritual armed camps!).

The pictures in this thread will feature the most prominent photographic examples of actual temple-buidlings corresponding to the principal religions of the Grand Consensus of Believers.

THE CHURCH OF SACRED WISDOM (HAGIA SOPHIA), ISTANBUL











The church measures 77 x 72 m. and the impressive huge dome soaring 62 m. above the floor has a diameter of about 33 m. According to R. van Nice, a scholar well versed in the problems posed by the architecture and statics of Hagia Sophia, the nave is 38.07 m. wide, slightly more than twice the width of the aisles, which measure 18.29 m. each. The vertical planes formed between the two north and the two south piers by the arcades of the aisles and galleries and the tympana above them are aligned flush with the side of the piers facing the nave. Thus, the mass of the piers is pushed aside into the aisles and galleries. By this clever arrangement the bearing structure is hidden from the eye, creating the impression that space expands in all directions and that the dome floats in the air.

Ancient Persia, before Islam swept it, was for a 1000 years dominated by the faith of Prophet Zarathustra (or Zoroaster) whose fire-temples were everywhere and protected by the Imperial Rulers of Persia. One ruler of this faith, Cyrus, allowed those Jews who wanted to return to Israel - to do so under his patronage (release from the Babylonian Captivity).

Today, a few active ones remain, while most of the Zoroastrian community that did not convert to Islam immigrated to Northern India (known as the Farsi community). "Yazd" means praise in Farsi language.

Here is the Zoroastrian Temple at Yazd (Pars Banou Zoroastrian Temple), present-day Iran:












A Zoroastrian Fire Temple in Yazd holds a traditional fire which has been kept alight by Zoroastrian priests, continuously for over 1100 years.

One can see the definite satisfaction with the mosque or cupola style architectural element idea symbolic of the Islamic/Byzantine structure of Cosmos, as can be seen in the above.
