YIS301 Byzantine History
Professor: Christos MERANTZAS
We outline the thousand-year history of the Byzantine Empire, which incorporates the Roman identity, the Greek spirit, Eastern mysticism and the Christian soul. With the help of selected Byzantine texts (historiographical, philosophical, poetic, theological, literary, etc.) we follow the social, spiritual, theological, political and military structure and organization of the Byzantine Empire from its foundation in the 4th century until its fall in the 15th century.
