The third exhibition in a chronological series devoted to the art and
influence of Byzantine civilization, this major international loan
exhibition demonstrates the artistic and cultural significance of the
last centuries of the state that called itself "the Empire of the
Romans." The exhibition begins in 1261, when the capital
Constantinople was restored to imperial rule, and concludes in 1557,
when the empire that had fallen to the Ottoman Turks in 1453 was
renamed Byzantium—the name by which it is still known today. The
importance of the era is primarily demonstrated through the arts
created for the Orthodox church and for the churches of other East
Christian states that aspired to be the heirs to the empire's power.
The impact of its culture on the Islamic world and the Latin-speaking
West is also explored—especially the influence of the Christian East
on the development of the Renaissance.
Accompanied by a catalogue.

In connection with the exhibition, a major symposium on "Byzantium:
Faith and Power" will be held at the Metropolitan Museum from Friday,
April 16, to Sunday, April 18. The event will include scholarly
presentations and a concluding performance. For more information, call
212-570-3710 or email lectures@metmuseum.org.

The exhibition is made possible by Alpha Bank.
Sponsorship is also provided by the J. F. Costopoulos Foundation, the
A. G. Leventis Foundation and the Stavros S. Niarchos Foundation.
Additional support has been provided by the National Endowment for the
Arts.
An indemnity has been granted by the Federal Council on the Arts and
the Humanities.

Oh Lord, Save thy people and bless thine inheritance.
Grant victory to the Orthodox Christians over their adversaries.
And by virtue of thy Cross preserve thy habitation.
