A view of Jesus Christ Pantocrator Mosaic at the south dome of inner narthex, Chora Museum, Karagümrük Neighborhood of Fatih District, Şehr-i Istanbul Turkey (Turkish: Hz. İsa Pantokratör Mozaik canlandırmasının Kariye Müzesi ve Camii içi narteks, güney kubbesinde bir görüntüsü, Karagümrük Semti Fatih İlçesi, Şehr-i İstanbul Türkiye). The Church of the Holy Saviour in Chora (Turkish literally Kariye Müzesi, Kariye Camii or Kariye Kilisesi — the Chora Museum, Mosque or Church) is considered to be one of the most beautiful surviving examples of a Byzantine church. The interior of the building is covered with the world's richest and finest mosaics and frescoes.

In Christian iconography, Christ Pantocrator refers to a specific depiction of Christ. Pantocrator or Pantokrator (from the Greek Παντοκράτωρ) is a translation of one of many Names of God in Judaism. When the Hebrew Bible was translated into Greek as the Septuagint, Pantokrator was used both for YHWH Tzevaot Lord of Hosts and for El Shaddai God Almighty. The arrangement of fingers on Jesus’ right hand raised in blessing is significant. Two different forms may be seen in iconography. These two forms date from a schism that split the Russian Orthodox church in 1667. Patriarch Nikon instituted reforms that a group of people who came to be known as the Old Believers refused to accept.
