Master of mysteries and lord of law, high-pinnacled upon the throne of thought, his face suffused with the dim splendors of the Transfiguration, his legs intertwisted and his tongue a-cheek, the editor spills his will along the paper and cuts it off in lengths to suit.
The original dictionary contained some 1,000 saucy definitions, with nearly 900 more added 50 years later. As the distinction between "Roman Empire" and "Byzantine Empire" is purely a modern convention, it is not possible to assign a date of separation, but an important point is the Emperor Constantine I's transfer in 324 of the capital from Nicomedia (in Anatolia) to Byzantium on the Bosphorus, which became Constantinople (alternatively "New Rome"). And at intervals from behind the veil of the temple is heard the voice of the foreman demanding three inches of wit and six lines of religious meditation, or bidding him turn off the wisdom and whack up some pathos. Though it won’t replace the Oxford Dictionaries of English anytime soon, it’s full of tongue-in-cheek entries that remain relevant even to this day.
The Empire remained one of the most powerful economic, cultural, and military forces in Europe, despite setbacks and territorial losses, especially during the RomanPersian and ByzantineArab Wars. The Empire recovered during the Macedonian dynasty, rising again to become the pre-eminent power in the Eastern Mediterranean by the late 10th century. After 1071 however, much of Asia Minor, the Empire's heartland, was lost to the Seljuk Turks.
The Komnenian restoration regained some ground and briefly re-established dominance in the 12th century, but declined again under their successors.

The ancient Roman Empire having been divided into two parts, an Eastern and a Western, the Eastern remained subject to successors of Constantine, whose capital was at Byzantium or Constantinople. First proposed in 1980, it was proved impossible to solve deterministically which launched some of the early work on randomized algorithms.
As the only (randomized) solutions for synchronous and asynchronous environments were resp., nearly linear time or exponential time, or required assumptions of private channels, this spurred the field of cryptography to develop concepts like multiparty secure computation.

Another attempt at a rational dialogue with Islam ends in a fiasco with a quote taken out of context. It was he who moved the imperial capital in 330 from Rome to Byzantium, refounded as Constantinople, or Nova Roma ("New Rome"). Constantine inaugurated his new capital, the process of hellenization and increasing Christianization was already under way.
The Empire is generally considered to have ended after the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453, although Greek rule continued over areas of the Empire's territory for several more years, until the fall of Mystras in 1460 and Trebizond in 1461.

Egypt has been an important part of the Byzantine world; besides the Egyptian wheat that had fed all the Roman citizens. Egypt has attracted many students such as Chrysogonos; Magnos and Hilarion to its famous Alexandian schools of medicine. Relating to medieval successor of the Eastern Roman Over the centuries, Byzantine society and culture greatly influenced eastern Europe, and particularly the Kievan state which became Russia, as well as the cultures of the Caucasus to the.
Zacharias the Scholastic wrote in his book "Life of Severus", that young people from all the Mediterranean have flocked to Egypt to study grammar, rhetoric & philosophy. Homer remained the canonical author par excellence in and out of schools and was also present in monastic environments such as the monastery at Thebes. It had asserted it's independence through the ages as a buffer state between the Hellenistic Seleucids & the Parthian empire. Armenia would reach its highest development under King Tigran the great after 95 BC; who expanded the boundaries of the realm to the shores of the Caspian & Mediterranean. This alliance had been cemented through the marriage of Tigranes & Cleopatra, the daughter of King Mithridates VI who was engaged in a bitter war against the Roman Republic. The Mithridatic wars ended with the victory of Pompeius who would reduce Armenia to its ethnic boundaries.
Armenia would keep it's independence but it would resume its status as a buffer state between the Romans & the Persians. This step has driven Armenia away from the Persian orbit and introduces it to the Orthodox Byzantine commonwealth. From its strategic location in portions of modern Syria, Jordan, and Israel, they have protected the spice trade route from the south of the Arabian Peninsula at Yemen (Arabia Felix) and acted as a buffer against the desert Bedouin invaders. The Ghassanids, who thus came to power as client-kings of the Romans around the year 530 AD, In the history of Syriac Christianity they were the champions of Mono-physitism, and the representatives of Christianity to their countrymen in the peninsula. In the history of culture they had the double function of being patrons of Arabic poetry and unsuspecting middlemen of Byzantinism (Christian Romanization) to the Arabs outside the limes. The monasteries penetrated deep in the heart of Arabia, into regions to which the church could not penetrate. Thus the monastery turned out to be more influential than the church in the spiritual life of the Arabs, especially in the sphere of indirect Byzantine influence in the Peninsula. The monastery was also the meeting place of two ideals; Christian philanthropy and Arab hospitality The Ghassanid venerated Saint Sergius and protected the Christian pilgrims to the shrine of St Sergius .

Amen.Byzantine chant - ??????????? ???? ?????? (part I) Byzantine Chant of the early Byzantine Era.
It was used during a now defunct church service, called the "Service of the Three Youths in the fiery furnace" which was an interlude between the Matins and the Divine Liturgy on the Sunday before the Nativity. Nowadays only this troparion (part I) remains as part of the Matins, to remind the whole service which lasted about 35-40 minutes.
Though the transcription and the interpretation has a distinct late byzantine style, the elements that show the ancient origin of the chant are present and noticeable, and in this respect this piece is an extremely rare sample. If one listens carefully, through the melodic decorations and calophonic improvisations of the byzantine style, one can clearly discern the basic melody which is astoundingly similar to its western contemporaries. I fire my malice into the crowd Dispersing empty shells onto the ground Screaming as I sling my rosary Into the noose it has became to be I cannot monitor I cannot mute the screams I cannot recall the day That I broke free from my arrows and slings This power hungry nation of fools Applies fabric of war to line the pockets of greed We lean on the broken bones of their simplicity And taunt the Jihad as we spit in the face of God Blasphemy I cannot mute the screams I cannot recall the day That I broke free from my arrows and slings We fight for the right to inhale We fight for the right to abort We fight for the right just to pray And these rights they will never extort I cannot monitor I cannot mute the screams I cannot recall the day That I broke free from my arrows and slingsByzantine Empire Hippodrome of Constantinople - Sultanahmet The Great Hippodrome of the Byzantine Empire. The Hippodrome of Constantinople was a horse-racing track that was the sporting and social centre of Constantinople, capital of the Byzantine Empire and the largest city in Europe. Today it is a square named Sultanahmet Meydani in the Turkish city of Istanbul, with only a few fragments of the original structure surviving. The word hippodrome comes from the Greek hippos ('?????), horse, and dromos (??????), path or way.
Horse racing and chariot racing were popular pastimes in the ancient world and hippodromes were common features of Greek cities in the Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine eras. History and use Although the Hippodrome is usually associated with Constantinople's days of glory as an imperial capital, it actually predates that era. The first Hippdrome was built when the city was called Byzantium (Byzantion in Greek), and was a provincial town of moderate importance.
In 203 the Emperor Septimius Severus rebuilt the city and expanded its walls, endowing it with a hippodrome, an arena for chariot races and other entertainments.
In 324, the Emperor Constantine the Great decided to move the seat of the government from Rome to Byzantium, which he renamed Nova Roma (New Rome).
This name failed to impress and the city soon became known as Constantinople, the City of Constantine. Constantine greatly enlarged the city, and one of his major undertakings was the renovation of the Hippodrome. The text is based upon Robin Cormack's book; "Byzantine Art", Oxford university press 2000.
