The Byzantine artistic tradition was. ln the words of s ot one scholar, ctmonumental, lcaletdoscoptc, constantly open to fashion, , energlzll\g rgazang and far-reaching (Beckwith).

Russia succeeded Constantinople as the “third Rome" and the center of the Eastern Orthodox Church after the empire s collapseDuring the fifth and sixth centuries, while  invasions and religiouscontroversy wracked the Italian peninsula, the E astern Empire tern Eprospered Constantinople remained secure behind massive walls defended by the imperial army and navy. Its control of land and sea routes between E:trope and Asia made many of its people wealthy. The patronage of the affluent citizenry; as well as that of the imperial family; made the city an artistic center. Greek literature, science and philosophy continued to be taught in its schools. Influences from the regions under the empire's control Syria, Palestine, Egypt, Persia, and Greece gradually combined to create a distinctive Byzantine culture.
