Did the people in the Byzantine empire speak Greek?

User Avatar
In the beginning, right after the split, many in the Balkans spoke Latin, the people in greece and western Turkey spoke greek, and in eastern Turkey Armenian was dominant. Since the empire was centered in greece, greek became the dominant language in the empire, used by the nobility and clergy. Justinian the Great was the last Emperor of Byzantium to speak latin.

What factors allowed Byzantium to survive for such a long time?

User Avatar
As the central city of the Eastern Roman Empire, Constantinople (formerly Byzantium) was set up against cliffs that provided a natural barrier for invading forces. Walls were built - three deep - on the open side toward the sea. Those reinforcements coupled with good irrigation and soil, cleanliness, the ability to trade with a variety of nations allowed Byzantium/Constantinople/Istanbul to be self sufficient for an extended period of time - well over 1000 years in fact. Constant change in leadership that was undermined and the determination of the Ottoman forces were the primary reasons the city changed hands. (Freeman, 2004)

What is an ancient roman thing that starts with q?

User Avatar
there is none, but you might be thinking of an aqueduct. Correction: there are many Roman "things" that start with Q. Here are some: quadra--a square, quadrans, a coin, quadrigae, a racing chariot, quaestor, a treasury official, qualus, as wicker basket, quercus, the military crown of oak leaves, and quirites, the formal connotation of Roman citizens. There are many more.

When did the byzantium originate?

User Avatar
Unfortunately there's not a clear answer to this as historians disagree over when the 'Byzantine Empire' changed from simply being the 'Roman Empire'. In truth, the populace of the empire never considered themselves to be 'Byzantine', they actually thought of themselves as Roman. 'Byzantium', as it is referred to today, is a bit of an awkward term that was created by pre-twentieth century historians. It's used to describe the late Roman Empire and comes from the original name of its capital city: Constantinople. Which had previously been known as 'Byzantium'. There are a group of arguments amongst historians with regards to when 'Byzantium' began: In 286 AD when the Roman Empire was divided into Eastern and Western halves by the Emperor Diocletian. When Constantine built the city of Constantinople, c.324-330 AD When the last Western Roman Emperor died, 476 AD During the Islamic expansion in the 7th century AD Though there is an agreed upon end-date(1453). In truth it may simply be easier to view this as the 'Later Roman Empire', as many of the customs and traditions (though certainly not the religious commitments) of the people stay the same until the Islamic expansions - hence the argument for such being the beginning of 'Byzantium'.

How did the Roman and Greek Empires influence American Society?

User Avatar
The superiority views of the mentor of Alexander the Great (Aristoteles) heavily influenced the Roman Empire. These superiority views of Aristotle (Nicomachean Ethics) many ages later were base of Protestant Religion. During Enlightenment fundamental protestants fled from all over Europe to America to establish a New World. That took killing millions of Red Indians and the life of even more millions of black slaves But in the view of Aristotle superiority and slavery of inferior humans are 'natural'.

How did the Ottoman Empire defeat the byzantine empire?

User Avatar
The Ottomans had skilled soldiers, so over time they would conquer different parts slowly, and once they had defeated the last of the Byzantine Empire, the Ottoman Empire was now a large empire. The Ottoman Empire started off as a little community, but kept growing into a large empire, lead by a man named Osman.

How did Byzantium get its name?

User Avatar
spiropoulos Many have asked the historical account of byzantium. History has it as a myth that it was founded by BYZAS, between the golden horn and lygos.They called it BYZANTION after their leader BYZAS. The old greek biography states it was BYZAS who founded it, called it Byzantine, he was alexanders general in search of conquest, proclaiming it part of alexanders empire after his name.But history states Greeks colonized it in 750-550 bc, could it be like today, Macedonia was not considered greek.Byzas men in history are called men of Megra. If the present city is not old enough, look towards the sea where boats would have landed and built his fortress, as a general keyed on defense part of an empire of Alexander, not as migrate people. The Vikings called Byzantium Miklagard, meaning city of gold
