  • The Byzantines: Engineering an Empire

    Brilliance and brutality. Intellect and intrigue. Christianity and carnage. As much of the world descended into the Dark Ages after the fall of Rome, one civilization shone brilliantly: the Byzantine Empire. With ruthless might and supreme ingenuity, the Byzantines ruled over vast swaths of Europe and Asia for more than a thousand years. A bridge to antiquity, it was Byzantium that preserved the classical learning and science that would one day give rise to the Renaissance. Led by rulers who exercised absolute power and architects who pushed beyond Rome's engineering marvels, the Byzantines constructed the ancient world's longest aqueduct, virtually invincible city walls, a massive stadium, and a colossal domed cathedral that defied the laws of nature.

    The Hymn of Kassiani, sung Holy Tuesday evening during the Matins of Holy Wednesday. Tradition says that in his later years the Emperor Theophilus, still in love with Kassiani, wished to see her one more time before he died, so he rode to the monastery where she resided. Kassiani was alone in her cell, writing her Hymn when she realized that the commotion she heard was because the imperial retinue had arrived. She was still in love with him but was now devoted to God and hid away because she did not want to let her old passion overcome her monastic vow. She left the unfinished hymn on the table. Theophilus found her cell and entered it alone. He looked for her but she was not there; she was hiding in a closet, watching him.

    Basil I was hardly a promising candidate to usher in a new golden age to the Byzantine Empire. A poor, illiterate Armenian peasant, he was kidnapped by raiding Bulgarians as a boy, and only managed to escape in his mid twenties. Renowned for his great strength and skill with horses, he found work as a stable hand and grew into a violent, ambitious man, whose thirst for power led him to commit two of the foulest murders that even Byzantine history has to offer. And yet, against the odds, his reign was the most successful of the century, and the Macedonian dynasty that he would found, would bring the empire to the height of its power and prestige. Join Lars Brownworth as he looks at the reign of the emperor Basil the Macedonian.

The First Balkan war breaks out in 1912 - When Greece, Montenegro, Serbia and Bulgaria declare war on Turkey. An combined attempt, to force the Turks out of Balkans. Ground Prince Constantine is made supreme Commander of the Greek army and after three weeks of fighting, the Greeks takes Salonica. King George and Ground Prince Constantine were greeted by jubilation at the Northen Greek town, it was gorgeous proudest moment. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Constantine I King of Greece - liberation of Macedonia, Thessaloniki - was King of Greece from 1913 to 1917 and from 1920 to 1922. He was Commander-in-Chief of the Hellenic Army during the unsuccessful Greco-Turkish War of 1897 and led the Greek forces during the successful Balkan Wars of 1912-1913, in which Greece liberate North Greece (Northern Epirus , Macedonia, Thrace, and doubled in area and population. He succeeded to the throne of Greece on 18 March 1913, following his father's assassination. As General Inspector of the Army, Constantine again was appointed commander-in-chief of the Greek Army when the First Balkan War broke out in October 1912. He led the Army of Thessaly to victory at Sarantaporo. At this point, his first clash with Venizelos occurred, as Constantine desired to press north, towards Monastir, where the bulk of the Ottoman army lay, and where the Greeks would meet their Serb allies. Venizelos, on the other hand, demanded that the army capture as soon as possible the strategic city of Thessaloniki, the capital of Macedonia, before the Bulgarians got there. The dispute resulted in a heated exchange of letters, but Venizelos got his way: after again defeating the Ottoman army at Giannitsa, Constantine accepted the surrender of the city of Thessaloniki and of its Ottoman garrison on 27 October (O.S.), less than 24 hours before the arrival of a Bulgarian force. In the meantime, the operations in the Epirus front had stalled: against the rough terrain, and the Ottoman fortifications at Bizani, the small Greek force could not make any headway. With operations in Macedonia complete, Constantine transferred the bulk of his forces to Epirus, and assumed their command. After lengthy preparations, the Greeks broke through the Ottoman defences in the Battle of Bizani and captured Ioannina and most of Epirus up into what is today southern Albania (Northern Epirus). These victories dispelled the tarnish of the 1897 defeat, and raised Constantine to great popularity with the Greek people. At that point, tragedy struck: George I was killed in Thessaloniki by Alexandros Schinas on 18 March 1913, and Constantine assumed the throne. In the meantime, tensions between the Balkan allies grew, as Bulgaria claimed Greek and Serbian-occupied territory. In May, Greece and Serbia concluded a secret defensive alliance. On 16 June, the Bulgarian army attacked their erstwhile allies, but were soon stopped. King Constantine again led the Greek Army in its counterattack, in the battles of Kilkis-Lahanas and Kresna Gorge. Following their defeats and the intervention of the Ottomans and Romania, Bulgaria agreed to a ceasefire, leading to negotiations in Bucharest. The victories in the second war gave a further boost to Constantine's popularity, with him being widely acclaimed as "Bulgar-slayer", in imitation of the Byzantine emperor Basil II. On the initiative of Prime Minister Venizelos, Constantine was also awarded the rank and baton of a Field Marshal.

The Hymn of Kassiani, sung Holy Tuesday evening during the Matins of Holy Wednesday. Tradition says that in his later years the Emperor Theophilus, still in love with Kassiani, wished to see her one more time before he died, so he rode to the monastery where she resided. Kassiani was alone in her cell, writing her Hymn when she realized that the commotion she heard was because the imperial retinue had arrived. She was still in love with him but was now devoted to God and hid away because she did not want to let her old passion overcome her monastic vow. She left the unfinished hymn on the table. Theophilus found her cell and entered it alone. He looked for her but she was not there; she was hiding in a closet, watching him. Theophilus felt very sad, cried, and regretted that for a moment of pride he rejected such a beautiful and intellectual woman; then he noticed the papers on the table and read them. When he was done reading, he sat and added one line to the hymn; then he left. The line attributed to the Emperor is the line "those very feet whose sound Eve heard at the dusk in Paradise and hid herself in fear". Kassiani emerged when the emperor was gone, read what he had written and finished the hymn.

In 1469 Grand Prince Ivan III the Great of Russia married Sophia Palaiologina, a niece of the last Byzantine emperor Constantine XI. Upon this, Ivan adopted the concept of Moscow as the Third Rome, the heir to Rome and Constantinople (the Second Rome) as capitals of the true Christian faith. Since then, Russia uses the Byzantine Double headed eagle as its coat of arms.

Maurice finally brought the war to a successful conclusion . After his victory on the eastern frontier, Maurice was free to focus on the Balkans. The Slavs, having pillaged the Byzantine Balkan provinces for decades, probably began settling the land from the 580s on. The Avars took the strategically important fort of Sirmium in 582, using it as a base of operations against several poorly defended forts alongside the Danube. In 584 the Slavs threatened the capital and in 586 Avars besieged Thessalonica, while Slavs went as far as the Peloponnese. In 591 Maurice launched several campaigns against Slavs and Avars - with good prospect of turning the tide. In 592 his troops retook Singidunum from the Avars. His commander-in-chief Priscus defeated Slavs.

Romania has a unique status among the Byzantine nations for being a Latin and an orthodox people. Romanians has originated from Thracians and Romans. From the end of the sixth century B.C. the native Thracian origin were called Getae / Dacii (Dacians). The movie explores the Romanian history from the Roman republic through the transformation of Rome to Empire and the establishment of Constantinople as the new center of Roman- Greek Byzantine sphere of commonwealth that included the nations between the Euphrates; the Nile and the Danube. Dacia had long been in Rome's political and cultural sphere of influence; it was annexed among the imperial provinces. The empire followed an organized, official colonization policy, granting land even to those who were not Roman citizens & founding cities, The official protective policy, the massive infusion of Roman settlers, and the integration of the Dacians into a higher civilization through Romanization transformed the new province from the very first into a thriving economic region Toward the middle of the thirteenth century voivodates dependent on Hungary began to form, but evidence shows that they soon sought independence from the Hungarian crown. Three voivodates were established in the future Wallachia in 1247, in accordance with the Diploma granted the Knights Hospitalers by Bela IV The unification of these realms was probably hastened by the arrival of Romanians from beyond the mountains that had fled the imposition of Catholicism Moldavia and Wallachia became principalities in the fourteenth century by rebelling against their suzerain, the king of Hungary. The dispute with Hungary was both political and religious From the time that Moldavia and Wallachia were founded, the princes had adopted the attitude of crusaders defending the threatened borders of Europe. The Romanians considered themselves a bastion of Christianity, a barrier to the foe from the south who threatened to destroy Europe. The crusader spirit can be seen as early as Vladislav I of Wallachia, the first voivode to come into direct military conflict with the Turks (1371). Throughout the fourteenth to early eighteenth centuries, Moldavia and Wallachia also received a steady flow of refugees from other countries, mostly from the Balkans: Bulgaria, Serbia, and Greece in particular as the Christian states south of the Danube fell to the Ottoman empire.

As famine, war, plague leave death devastation in their wake, out of north bursts the last of the barbarian hordes. Fiercely pagan, famous for their cruelty, the Lombards strike the final blow to the Roman Empire. In 488 the Lombards are a small but particularly savage group of warriors on the move, surviving by viciously raiding other tribes Originating in Scandinavia and migrating south, into Roman regions, they eventually inhabit what became modern day Austria and Hungary At the turn of the 6th century only the eastern half of the empire remains, ruled by the Byzantine emperor from Constantinople. Alboin, king of the Lombards, was celebrated as a man fitted for wars, with noble bearing and courage. The emperor Justinian recruited Alboin and the Vandals to aid in the reconquest of Italy which was controlled by the Goths. The Roman military leaders disgusted by the uncontrolled Lombard warriors, relegated them to a new homeland along the banks of the Danube River. In 568, the Lombards, well familiar with Italy from earlier days as Roman mercenaries, invade Rome, inviting Saxons, Bulgars and other barbarian tribes to join. Much of our information regarding the Lombards is found in the 8th century chronicler Paul the Deacon's work, HISTORY OF THE LOMBARDS, translated by William Dudley Foulke, LL.D., edited with introduction by Edward Peters, University of Pennsylvania Press, Philadelphia, 1907 This History Channel documentary series, Barbarians 2, tells the fascinating stories of four of the most fabled groups of fighters in history, the Saxons, the Lombards, the Franks, the Vandals, tracing 1,000 years of conquest and adventure through inspired scholarship and some of the most extensive reenactments ever filmed.
