Hi guys, new on this forum here! (not so on the trforums though). A good fellow member suggested me to register here and share my theory, so here I go:

Well, In case you didn't notice -wich you obviously did- there are various hints both in the trailer and concept arts about a specific type of archytecture: byzantine architecture, to be more specific.

The dome shown back there looks a lot like the famous Hagia Sophia, a former Greek Orthodox patriarchal basilica (church), later an imperial mosque, and now a museum in Istanbul, Turkey.

Also, the symbol appearing in the trailer seems connected to this particular place...

...since it appears on various forms both in architecture and mosaics.

The Church was dedicated to the Wisdom of God, the Logos, the second person of the Holy Trinity.

And to end, I want to share something I did two months ago just for fun, and now it had another whole meaning since both the name and the possible location are most likely true :D

I'll go deeper into this.
