Byzantine and Christian Museum - Byzantium and the Others in the First Millennium

The exhibition of the Byzantine and Christian Museum emphasizes the role of the Byzantine Empire, between 300-1000 AD, as a pole of stability in a period of great uncertainties and conflicts (upheavals and reversals) in the European world as well as in the broader Mediterranean area. Through six thematic sections: “Transition”, “Worship”, “Intellectual Life”, “Warfare in the Western and Eastern Roman Empire” “Secular Life” and “Trade”, exhibition visitors will experience how people lived in the first millennium, how was their everyday life, what they feared, their dangers, what they liked, their occupations and their beliefs.
