Byzantine Empire eBooks CollectionEnglish | .PDF | 3.78 GBThe Byzantine Empire (or Byzantium) was the Roman Empire during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, centered on the capital of Constantinople. The state is also referred to as the Eastern Roman Empire, primarily in the context of Late Antiquity, and especially while the Western Roman Empire was still maintained in Italy. Both \"Byzantine Empire\" and \"Eastern Roman Empire\" are historiographical terms applied in later centuries: throughout its existence the state was known simply as the Roman Empire or Romania and was the direct continuation of the Roman State, maintaining Roman state traditions. Byzantium is today distinguished from ancient Rome proper insofar as it was oriented towards Greek culture, characterized by Orthodox Christianity rather than Roman polytheism, and was predominantly Greek-speaking rather than Latin-speaking.As the distinction between Roman Empire and Byzantine Empire is a modern convention, it is not possible to assign a single date of transition. However, there are several important dates. In 285, Emperor Diocletian (r. 284–305) divided the Roman Empire's administration into eastern and western halves. In 324, Emperor Constantine I (r. 306–337) transferred the eastern capital from Nicomedia in Asia Minor to Byzantium in Europe on the Bosphorus, which became Constantinople, the \"City of Constantine\" or alternatively \"New Rome\". In 395 after the death of Emperor Theodosius I (r. 379–395), the Roman Empire was divided for the last time, politically separating the eastern and western halves of the empire forever. A final period of transition began during the later reign of Emperor Heraclius (r. 610–641) when he entirely transformed the empire by reforming the army and administration by introducing themes and by changing the official language of the Empire from Latin to Greek.A PDF collection of 185 eBooks about the Byzantine Empire. eBooks are sorted on publisher's name.Ashgate Publishing Art and Identity
