The new imperial capital rose on the site of the ancient city of Byzantium on the Bosporus Strait linking the Aegean and Black Seas. Dedicated in 330 and renamed Constantinople (now Istanbul), the city became the largest and wealthiest in Christendom, dazzling European and Russian visitors. The old name, Byzantium, is used to refer to the Byzantine Empire, which lasted for more than a millennium before falling to the Ottoman Turks in 1453.

The Byzantines called themselves Romaioi (Romans) and Constantinople “New Rome.” It was the seat of a government that perpetuated many Roman administrative and judicial practices. Byzantium was also heir to ancient Greek learning and literature. The most basic component of Byzantine culture was the Christian religion, which profoundly influenced the visual arts and permeated all aspects of life. Church and state were tightly intertwined in a society ruled by an emperor hailed as “Christ’s vice-regent.”
