We have the knowledge that Byzantine Empire is another name for the Eastern Roman Empire. The Roman army conquered the area around Mediterranean Sea; with its west part was totally of Latin Culture and east part of Greek’s. To better control the country, Roman shared the empire between individuals, and there was Augustus for the senior governor and Caesars for the successor to Augustus. In 330, Constantine the first moved to Byzantium where it was the route to communicate Europe and Asia, and founded the second Rome. The capital was Constantinople.
Christianity was favored by Constantine, but for Byzantine it was not exclusive religion. It takes a long time to make Christianity the religion of the empire, while the state church is what we called Eastern Orthodox Church. The doctrine was not determined until the first seven ecumenical councils made the decision. In 388, people of the empire were made to assume “the name of Catholic Christian”. " The unity of the Empire meant also unity in the church. " (Vasiliev, 146).
Eastern Orthodox Church has been the state church for Byzantine Empire and there were no more religion representing the empire. Later in around 6th to 7th Century when Islamic was established, developing and enlarging its area, which forbid worshiping icons, Leo III made a decision to destroy the icons throughout the empire, causing the chaos of the empire. At the same time, the conflict between Byzantine’s Church and Roman Church became deeper. Therefore we can draw the conclusion that the religious situation was complex at that time.
During the early period of Byzantine, the economy was stronger than that of the west and even the best among the whole Europe. The Europe cannot catch up with Byzantine until the late Middle Ages. As the empire was in the route from Asia to Europe and communicates the continent of Asia, Africa and Europe, the empire owned a big trading network. Especially the empire was in the position which is part of the Silk Road, bringing the flourishing economy of the empire. This could last until the 6th century, when the Arab was conquering the peninsula and plague took place. From that on, the economy was no longer as prosperous as before, and the situation lasted for a very long time.
All in all, the early period of Byzantine Empire was prosperous and last for longer than the West Roman Empire, who was conquered by the barbaric. The existence of Byzantine keeps the culture of ancient Rome and Greek remain, which was great treasure for the west. However, the location of Byzantine led the empire to be rich, while it also brought the empire complexity including religion and politics, setting a block to prevent the empire from developing.
