The Nea Ekklēsia is one of the most famous Constantinopolitan churches that disappeared without physical trace. Its appearance is known only through written sources and a few contemporary renderings. Its most interesting features were its five-domed structure and its quintuple dedication. The Nea’s presumable form, interior arrangement, and meaning are important to understanding the ideas defining the transformation of architecture in the Middle Byzantine period.
