After the fall of Rome in the 5th century CE, the Eastern Roman (or Byzantine) Empire remained the most powerful economic, cultural, and military force in the Mediterranean world for another 1000 years. In this course, we will examine and discuss key topics and events, such as: Constantinople, capital of the Byzantine Empire; the Theodosian Walls in Constantinople, which held against attacks by the Huns; the Justinian Law Codes; the religious schism that split the Christian world; the Crusades; and the Muslim conquest of Constantinople, which closed down the Silk Road.

This course is offered with the generous support of the Association for Continuing Education.
