The reasons for Constantinople's success under the Emperor Constantine, Jutinian, and others, and how the traditions of Greece and Rome were carried on are explored. Byzantine art is examined to discover the relationship between political leaders and divinities and to understand the role holy images played in battle. The Fall of Byzantium (30:00) A thousand years after the fall of Rome, Islam conquered Constantinople and Islam's language, Arabic, spread through the known world. Santa Sophia, the great monument of Christendom, which influenced the Moslem mosque of Mohammed Ali in Cairo, is featured.
