About

The Byzantine Legacy aims at providing documented, quality information on art, architecture and history from Late Antique, Early Christian and the Byzantine eras. While the term "Byzantine" is useful, it is important to remember that they always called themselves Romans. Yet there were significant changes, especially the ascendancy of Christianity and the loss of the Western Roman Empire. The Byzantines were not a single ethnicity, but included many different cultures that were generally dominated by the Greek language and Christianity. In addition to being important in its own right, the Byzantine Empire also provides a helpful point of view to explore the many cultures that interacted with and influenced each other.

Mission
- To provide documented, quality information on art, architecture and history from Late Antiquity, Early Christianity and the Byzantine (Roman) Empire.
- To show a wide range of cultures that interacted with the Byzantine Empire (including the Persians, Goths, Bulgars, Magyars, Arabs, Rus, Venetians, Genoese, Crusaders and Turks)
