From A.D. 300 to A.D. 1000, the Byzantium went through turbulent times, creative and destructive, historical periods that reflected the strengthening of an empire through uncertainties and conflicts. 

The exhibition “Byzantium and the Οthers in the First Millennium: An Empire of stability in a turbulent era” which opened on May 17 at the Byzantine and Christian Museum, tries to depict Byzantium’s first millennium and its establishment as a pole of stability for the European continent but also the Mediterranean and many eastern countries. 

The exhibition which will run until 10 October 2018 is divided into six thematic sections: “Transition”, “Worship”, “Intellectual Life”, “Warfare in the Western and Eastern Roman Empire” “Secular Life” and “Trade”.
