Anthemius' Floating Byzantine Dome
By Colleen Messina
  

1     A long time ago a man named Anthemius had a big job. The Byzantine emperor Justinian I wanted him to build a beautiful church.
 
2     Anthemius had a great idea. He built a large dome. He built it so that it had no columns inside. This made the dome seem like it was floating in the air! No one had ever built a church like it before. The base of the building was in the shape of a cross. The building was called the Hagia Sophia. Those words meant divine wisdom. It was built between 532 and 537 A.D.
