3 The Byzantine Empire
4 The Empire: East and West Germanic tribes defeat Western Roman Empire Roman Empire in the East was not defeated. Called the Byzantine Empire It included: Greece Asia Minor Syria Egypt And other areas
5 Emperor Justinian (r. A.D ) Emperor Who Never Sleeps due to long hours dedicated to running the empire Hoped to revive the glory and the power of the Roman Empire. He preserved Roman Law The collections was called the Justinian Code. (AD 528) Basis of Byzantine law Used in Western Europe
6 Justinian Code (Collection of Roman Laws) Divided into 4 parts: Code- useful Roman Laws Digest- summarized Roman legal opinion Institutes- a guide for law students Novellae- laws passed after 534A.D. Preserved the idea that people should be ruled by laws, not on the whims of leaders
7 Justinian & Theodora Justinian s wife and adviser She helped to change the laws regarding the status women Divorce laws gave greater benefit to women Christian women were able to own property equal to their dowry. (Money or goods the wife brought to the marriage)
8 Belisarius general of the army Put down the Nika uprising in 532 A.D. won back former Roman lands from the Germanic tribes Byzantine Empire reached its greatest size
9 Constantinople center for law, religion, and arts LAW Justinian Code *preservation of Roman law *and legal rights of women Religion Eastern Orthodox * married priests * no icons at first Patriarch of Constantinople * rejected the supremacy of the Pope * Father supreme in Trinity
10 ART Religious --main subject --murals/icons > covered walls, floors, and ceilings of churches --mosaics (small pieces of enamel, glass, stone) Great religious architecture --Hagia Sophia church in Constantinople with huge 180 feet high dome
11 The Great Schism ( 1054 c.e.) Schism = a formal split within a religious community West Pope most powerful leader East Patriarch of Constantinople most powerful church leader No married priests Married priests allowed Icons honored No Icons (later approved) Holy Spirit combines both Father and Son Supremacy of Father in Trinity Iconoclasts believe having icons in church = worshipping idols Still Split Today
12 East v. West ICONS holy picture of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, or the saints. Iconoclasts Believed that having icons in church was the same as worshipping idols. Opposed it.
13 Iconoclastic Controversy: debate b/w defenders and opponents of icons. A.D. 726, Emperor Leo III ordered destruction of icons. Many people refused. In East, church leaders criticized icons. For those who could not read/write, icons helped them understand Christianity. Pope in Rome called bishops together. Decided refusing icons = heresy = opinion that conflicts the established belief. Threatened iconoclasts w/ excommunication = lifetime ban from the church.
14 Friction b/w Pope in Rome and patriarch in Constantinople. Church split = Great Schism (1054) West = Roman Catholic Church>Pope East = Eastern Orthodox Church>patriarch Still split today. East eventually accepted icons.
15 Hagia Sophia built by Byzantine Emperor Justinian in 537 AD holy wisdom Church in Constantinople. Architectural and engineering wonder. Six years to build. Huge dome sits on top of the church. 180 ft high and 108 ft. wide. Ceiling covered in gold.
17 Belisarius and Justinian s Effort to Recapture the West Defeated Persians secured eastern borders of the empire Tried to expand borders to include former territories of Western Roman Empire>Italy, Sicily, and Rome itself Could not reconcile eastern and western branches of the Church bitterly divided.
18 Relationship between Roman and Byzantine Empires Byzantine Empire (Byzantium) Eastern half of Roman Empire Roman Empire divided administratively in 395 C.E. Lasted 1000 yrs. after fall of Roman Empire
19 Emperors spoke Latin/ people spoke Greek Emperors looked to the past, but stressed Greek heritage of the territory Considered the New Rome after the fall of the Roman Empire Founded on Roman traditions, but developed with Greek and Persian influences.
20 Constantinople Sat where Europe met Asia Looked over the Bosporus Strait overlooking the Black Sea Control of sea trade routes between Asia and Europe. Imperial taxes raised huge govt. money. Capital and Cultural Center built by Constantine (he favored the site and the eastern territories Unique position=in two worlds West and East EUROPE Geographically in Europe, but Asia is only 12 miles away ASI A
21 Byzantine Culture Constantinople = center of civilization Passed on contributions of ancient Greece and Rome. Also produced original work. Spread culture throughout Med. Area Art = focused on Religion. Mosaic = picture or design made from small pieces of enamel, glass, or stone. Art did not imitate reality. Intended to inspire adoration of religious figures.
22 Ottoman Empire s role in decline of Byzantine and capture of Constantinople Ottoman Turks (rising Asian power) in 1300s began to threaten Byzantine territory mid 1300s moved into Balkans 1361 took Adrianople (a leading city) 1453 took Constantinople End of Byzantine empire --leadership and traditions of East Orthodox Church passed to Slavic people
23 Effect of Byzantine culture on Tsar Ivan III and Kiev Russia settled by Slavic people First leader is Rurik leader of Rus people. Rivers allowed trade routes Traded with Vikings and Byzantine Little Christian activity until mid 900s 980s: Vladimir sent observers to services in many places * Hagia Sophia in Constantinople * tried to marry sister of Byzantine Emperor * converted to Christianity --order Kievans to be Christian --destroyed pagan statues
24 Yaroslav I (A.D ) Ruled Kievan Russia Built churches to inspire, make people feel spiritual, inspire religious wonder Very distinctive icons, frescoes 1 st code of laws: Pravda Russkia (mixed tribal and traditional law)
25 ( ) Ivan III He married niece (Sophia) of last Byzantine emperor Took title of CZAR means Caesar = Rome connection (Ivan is the first czar.) Russian Empire
26 Baptism of Ivan III Byzantine Church very important to Russian Empire The Patriarch of Constantine chose Kiev s bishop. Great SchismKiev followed East Orthodox Church
27 Impact on Moscow & Russian Empire Leader of Orthodox Church moved to Moscow in 1300 s Russia breaking away from Mongol rule Orthodox Church becoming identical of Constantinople 1453 Fall of Constantinople to Ottomans --Moscow = 3 rd Rome Byzantine Empire = extensions of Rome Russia = extension of Byzantine
28 Spread of Mongol Empire Mongols came from the Asian steppe (grassy, mostly treeless plain) east of the Ural mountains. Took advantage of weakness of Kiev (under attack) By 1240 took almost every city in Kievan Russia Crossed Carpathians into Hungary & Poland defeated their armies --didn t stay in Europe long/ wanted to go back to Russia --chose new Mongol leader

31 Russia (under Mongol rule) Mongols taxed Kievan people heavily Pay taxes = keep gov t and culture Peasants pay with $ or labor Built important roads Improved methods of taxation & communication Mongol words entered language that became Russian Some customs, traditions, and behaviors came from Mongol culture
32 The West --Mongols invaded Hungary and Poland defeated Hungary and Poland armies **fear of Mongol attack stimulated defense planning and sped up urbanization, technological development & political centralization

Said the angel Gabriel told him he was to be a prophet of God (Allah).
36 Exile and Return Muhammad left Mecca (622 A.D.) and went to Medina formed the beginnings of an Islamic state. 630 A.D. returned to Mecca with army of followers to conquer city for Islam. Cleared Shrine of Ka aba of pagan gods and rededicated it as Islamic house of worship. Appealed to Arabic people to follow him, whole Arabian peninsula under Islamic rule.
