Early Christian & Byzantine architecture
From Constantinople, the great city of the so-called Dark Ages, Byzantine architecture was exported to Italy and the West, to the Balkans, Russia, and the Moslem world, together with its magnificent sheathing of gold and glass mosaic. The Early Christian and Byzantine styles, of profound artistic quality, have influenced architecture ever since.
