EUH 5305: Byzantine History
Course Description for Byzantine History
The Byzantine Empire upheld the Christian, Greek, and Roman traditions of the ancient world and remained the most powerful and splendid medieval society until the 13th century. The course examines the ability of the Empire periodically to renew itself from 325 to 1453. In doing so, we shall not overlook the artistic, musical and literary achievements of Byzantine civilization and the heritage of Byzantium in later cultures.
