The Byzantines, were the remnants of the old Roman Empire. During the height of the empire, Rome's capital moved to Constantinople in the east. The west fell hundreds of years later to barbarians, thus leaving the east to hold its own. While many called it the Eastern Roman Empire, it became known as the Byzantine Empire, the Greek dominant.

Christianity at the time was a conglomeration of churches, known as the (Holy Orthodox Catholic Church. In 1021 the Western churches, centered in Rome, split from the eastern churches in Constantinople and they founded the Holy Catholic Church. The east continued to develop the original branch of orthodoxy, and continue to this day.
Byzantine Christianity was the nation/religion that came out of it. Churches in the Byzantine nation were all eastern orthodox, but some common traits can be found between them. One is the Greek, many words in the father such as "Theotokos", "Theos" are used no matter the native language and they mean Mother of God, and God in Greek. Others include the architecture, modeled with the big domed churches. Including the Agia Sophia, the Byzantine style of churches often have a dome and all have a specific layout uniform to all eastern Christians.
