Gavin Stamp on the Royal Academy’s Byzantium exhibition

  • Comment
Byzantium 330-1453. Until 22 March 2009 at the Royal Academy of Arts, Piccadilly, London W1
What we now call the Byzantine Empire began in AD330 when the Roman Emperor Constantine moved his capital from the Tiber to the Bosphorus, and named the Second Rome after himself. It ended in 1453 when Constantinople fell to the Ottomans.
