The exhibition ‘BYZANTIUM in the first millennium’ at the Byzantine and Christian Museum emphasizes the role of the Byzantine Empire, between 300-1000 AD as an emblem of stability in a period of great uncertainty, conflicts and upheavals in the European world, as well as in the broader Mediterranean region.
Through six thematic sections, visitors will experience how people lived in everyday life in the first millennium, their common fears, dangers, what they liked, their occupations and their beliefs.
