I'm not a historian but I'm super curious about what impact the Byzantine empire has had on Greece's culture and overall history.
 
Basically, after Constantine the great took power, and moved the capitol of the empire to Constantinople there was a huge Hellenic influence in the Byzantine empire. Previous to that, much of the empire had Italian or "Latin" influence on Greece.

While the Greeks were teaching mathematics, philosophy, science and the arts the majority of the world were barbarians. The empire that you reference (Rome) all of the above was copied from the Greeks. Constantine was an Italian that became Greek Orthodox. Because he reverted back to the truth while the West corrupted Gods word.

Apparently there was a pandemic in ancient Athens!

While I was doing some research about the pandemic I realize that they were actually way more common than I had thought. Little did I know that one of my favorite historical periods, ancient Greece, how to play they killed some really famous historical figures. How come no one told me this? Did any of you know about this???
