History: Byzantine Empire
The disintegration of the Roman Empire was followed by invasion of barbarian peoples: Eastern Goths, Gepidaes, Sarmatians, Avars, Slavs and others. Because of its advanced position at the border - limes, Belgrade suffered frequent attacks and destructions. The attacks coming from the north, across Pannonia, the Danube and Sava, were so hard that even Singidunum, an important military stronghold, could not resist them. The Huns captured it and completely destroyed it in . Singidunum lost its Roman inhabitants then. After the fall of the Huns, the town became a part of the Byzantine Empire once again in , but it was soon conquered by the Sarmatians, and later the Eastern Goths. However, already in , it became a Byzantine town again.

History of the Byzantine Empire In its dying days the Roman Empire gave birth to a successor which surpassed it in brilliance and longevity. In AD 330, Emperor Constantine the Great shifted the capital from Rome to the small town of Byzantium, which he renamed Constantinople and turned into a city so magnificent that to this day the word "Byzantine" is synonymous with splendour. The Byzantines inherited the Empire of Rome and the culture of ancient Greece. But they also brought something new - Byzantium was the first realm founded on Christianity.
Constantinople was ideally situated on the Bosphorus Straits (not far from Gallipoli), at the junction of the north-south and east-west trade routes. Its harbour, the Golden Horn, was one of the most magnificent in the world. The city, on a triangular peninsula protected on two sides by water and on the third by the triple Walls of Theodosius, was almost impregnable. It withstood nineteen sieges and was taken by storm only twice in its history.
In the sixth century Emperor Justinian the Great codified the laws, and embarked on an enormous progamme of building and conquest. But despite initial success, Justinian’s extravagance almost bankrupted the Empire, and turned Italy and North Africa into veritable deserts. Much of the conquered territory was soon lost again.

Both the state and the inhabitants always called themselves Roman , as did most of their neighbors.

A Brief Summary of Byzantine History T he Byzantine Empire, founded when the capital of the Roman Empire was transferred from Rome to Constantinople in 324, existed in the eastern Mediterranean area until the fifteenth century. The arts and culture of this "New Rome" continued the pan-Mediterranean traditions of the late antique Greco-Roman world, setting the standard of cultural excellence for the Latin West and the Islamic East. The results of the cultural development of the Byzantine Empire during these centuries has had a lasting impact on such modern nations as Albania, Armenia, Belorus', Bulgaria, Cyprus, Egypt, Georgia, Greece, Rumania, the Russian Federation, Serbia, Syria, Ukraine, and Turkey.

"Not since the world was made was there ever seen or won so great a treasure, or so noble or so rich, nor in the time of Alexander, nor in the time of Charlemagne, nor before, nor after, nor do I think myself that in the forty richest cities of the world had there been so much wealth as was found in Constantinople. For the Greeks say that two-thirds of the wealth of this world is in Constantinople and the other third scattered throughout the world." Robert of Clari, a French crusader who witnessed the pillage of the city in 1204, describing Constantinople.

A Century of Prosopography by James Tuck (Royal Holloway, University of London) (based on a text written for an exhibition at the British Academy, September 2000) The concept for a prosopography of the Roman Empire was probably first conceived by Christian Matthias Theodor Mommsen (1817-1903) when he edited CIL (Corpus Inscriptionem Latinarum) in 1858. Work was not begun on the original PIR (Prosopographicum Inscriptionem Romanorum) by Mommsen until 1877, however. Mommsen drew on his previous, and vast, experience with inscriptions, hence the first volumes where heavily reliant upon this form of evidence, supplemented by that of the literary sources. Mommsen, to his credit, did anticipate the importance of papyrology, which in his own era was very much a new art. To this end he encouraged Wilcken and Mitteis in their advancement of papyrology. Mommsen only (a severe understatement for such a great achievement) managed to cover the first three centuries, and there was a considerable delay before his original work was picked up by Professor A.H.M. Jones

    18. History Of Byzantine
    Christianity had a strong influence on byzantine art, music was the political centerof the empire, it also period produced remarkable works in history as well
    The Byzantine Empire The Byzantine Empire is also known as the East Roman Empire, for it was in fact a continuation of the Roman Empire into its eastern part. At its greatest size, during the 500's AD, Byzantine included parts of southern and eastern Europe, the Middle East, and northern Africa. The Byzantine people called themselves Romans although they were actually descendants of various ancient peoples and they spoke Greek. The word Byzantine, in fact, comes from "Byzantium," which is the Greek name for a city on the Bosphorus. The Greeks colonized the area first, in the mid-600's BC, even before Alexander the Great brought his troops into Anatolia (334 BC). Greek culture continued its influence long after the region became part of the Roman Empire, in the 100's BC. But it was when Roman emperor Constantine the Great moved the capital of the Empire from Rome to Byzantium and renamed it Constantinople, in 330 AD, that the Byzantine Empire really began. It lasted over 1000 years, ending finally in 1453, when the Turks conquered Constantinople and renamed it Istanbul. Christianity had a strong influence on Byzantine art, music, and architecture. Since Constantinople was the political center of the Empire, it also was the educational center, where future government officials learned to read and write the language of ancient Greece. Thus this period produced remarkable works in history as well as fine poetry, and much religious prose. All the visual arts flourished, too. Most of the artists worked as servants of the court or belonged to religious orders, and they remained anonymous. Ivory carvings, Byzantine crosses, and "illuminations," or small manuscript paintings, attest to their skill. Almost all that survives of the Byzantine architecture are its churches, with their glorious frescoes and mosaics. With Hagia Sophia as an example, their architects and artisans reached heady heights of magnificence, indeed.

    19. History Of The Ottoman Empire
    But the byzantine empire, weakened by repeated Mongolian sacking gradual declineof the Ottoman empire began, finally to a profound period in Turkish history.
    The Ottoman Empire One family reigned over the Ottoman Empire for seven centuries, and, unlike most dynasties, they ruled in an unbroken line, thirty-six of them altogether, from the 13th century until the 20th century. Yes there were abdications and depositions but never a hiatus. They were never overthrown by a foreign power and no usurper ever gained the throne. The Western world called them Ottoman, but their Turkish name is Osmanli, taken from the first ruler of the Ottoman state, Osman. It seemed amazing at the time, 1453 AD, that this previously obscure clan breached the walls and conquered the Byzantine capital of Constantinople. But the Byzantine Empire, weakened by repeated Mongolian sacking, suffering from subsequent internal confusion, and with no powerful leadership to guide them, fell to the Turkish invaders. Under Mehmed the Conqueror, the Ottomans rebuilt the devastated city of Constantinople into the fabulously wealthy capital they renamed Istanbul, with large warehouses, the Covered Bazaar, Topkapi Palace, and several mosque complexes.
