Professor Maria Efthymiou had called me on the eve of the conversion because I had sent her my novel "The City has been taken" and we had talked about Hagia Sophia
The enlightened professor Mrs. Maria Efthimiou posted today on Athens Voice that:
"Mr. Erdogan is in vain. Even if the walls of Hagia Sophia are scraped to turn the monument into a mosque, Byzantine hymns will be released. In flawless Greek. In the ages to come! ”
I could not answer her where she posted it, that is why I am writing my comment here: Thank you, Mrs. Maria Efthimiou. Your words about Hagia Sophia are the most beautiful I have heard!
And to complete her thought:
Now the scientists at Stanford University - who managed to digitally reproduce and reconstruct the chants that were heard there 1500 years ago - now is the time to release these chants, to make your speech or your vision a real scientific miracle! So that inside our Hagia Sophia, only those chants can be heard! And to be true!
And let everyone remember, both those who did not help and those who for the second time desecrate the holy temple, that History does not forgive.
