The ONLY available DVD release about Byzantium
For more than 1,000 years, the Byzantine Empire was the eye of
the entire world – the origin of great literature, fine art and modern
government. Heir to Greece and Rome, the Byzantine Empire was also
the first Christian empire. Now, after a year of filming on three
continents, TLC unlocks this ancient civilization, spanning 11 centuries
and three continents.
Pass through the gates of Constantinople, explore the magnificent
mosque of Hagia Sophia and see the looted treasures of the empire now
located in St. Marks, Venice.
