A tiled mosaic on the Hagia Sophia of Christ Pantocrator, a Greek term used to translate the Hebrew YHWH Sabaoth ("Lord of Hosts") and also El Shaddai ("God Almighty") in the Septuagint Greek translation of the Old Testament.  The term is used by Paul (2 Cor.6:18) and Revelation (1:8, 4:8, 11:17, 15:3, 16:7, 16:14, 19:6, 19:15, and 21:22).  Photo credit:  Guillaume Piolle, Wikimedia Commons.
