This is an attempt to map and photograph every remaining Byzantine church in Istanbul, no matter how fragmentary. I also look at the amazing proliferation of Christian variety that has stemmed from the original Ecumenical patriarchate of Constantinople. There are some inevitable inaccuracies here. Please let me know if you find some.

Here is the explanation and introduction (with references).

There are two ways of finding a particular church:

1. Find it in the index. Most churches appear under a number of different names.

2. Click the appropriate area on the list below (as indicated by the map).


Kocamustafapaşa, Yenikapı and Silivrikapı



Millet/Vatan Caddesi





Outer Istanbul

Outside Istanbul

Stefan’s unwilling union with a genetically engineered fish triggers his rise through the System, the bureaucratic quagmire that controls his world. He finds himself compelled to facilitate the congress of increasingly senior officials with the marine anomaly. Nic Krechter finds that he needs to use the fish’s services to deal with his rivals in the System. The fish herself has to cope with the conflicting pulls of her developing feelings for Stefan and her desire for freedom. As the outside world begins to push through the borders of the System, Stefan, Nic and the fish struggle to retain control over their lives.
