Description

Constantinople, May 1453: as the Byzantine Empire crumbles, Isaak and his family are entrusted with a silver reliquary carved with the figure of a weeping angel and this inscription: 'Behold the Proof of Chora, Container of the Uncontainable'. It holds proof of God's existence. Istanbul, 1887: the local magistrate, Kamil Pasha, is plagued by thefts of antiquities that appear for sale in Europe within days. In addition, there has been a series of murders in which the bodies bear the mark of angel's wings. Could this be connected to the rumours of an ancient cult, the mythical text link between Christianity and Islam?
