Ajoutée le 27 juin 2011 History of the Eastern Roman Empire Byzantium: 330 -1453 At the beginning of 4th century, the Roman Empire entered an economic, social, military and religious crisis and its Capital got divided, Christianized and transferred to Constantinople so as to survive. While the West collapsed and entered a dark age, the East stayed on. The Hellenic part of the Empire, not only survived, but developed and prospered. Byzantium, the heir of the Hellenic legacy reunited and synthesized the old knowledge of Egypt and Persia that, together with the new Christian religion, conformed a world and a culture of which others would be born. One of them was the Islam, and when it expanded vertiginously, it looked everywhere for Science, Knowledge, and Culture and gathered and was also translated it from Byzantine Empire. Thus, together with the Persian and Indian influence, the Islamic world arose. Another one was the Russian-Slav world. The Byzantine people provided them not only with the alphabet (Cyrillic), but also with the religion, the culture, the administration, the art, the knowledge and the myths. And the European Western world When it awakened and was reborn, the Byzantine wise people appear feeding the search of the Classics and by transmitting all their knowledge and their manuscripts that had been conserved from the Ancient world. Byzantium was the common root of the Middle East and the Western world, and a river that flowed from the Antiquity to the 15th century, of which they got nourished and from which the Islamic world, Europe Russian-Slav and the Western Renaissance grew.
