From the date of its construction in 537 until 1453, the Hagia Sofia served as an Eastern Orthodox cathedral and seat of the Patriarchate of Constantinople [ except between 1204 and 1261, when it was converted to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire]. The building was a mosque from 29 May 1453 until 1931. It was then secularized and opened as a museum in Istanbul, Turkey on 1 February 1935.
