This historical atlas charts key aspects of the political, social
and economic history of the Byzantine Empire, the dominant
Mediterranean power in the fifth and sixth centuries. Surrounded by
foes who posed a constant threat to its very existence, it survived
because of its administration, army and the strength of its
culture, of which Orthodox Christianity was a key element. This
medieval empire bridged the Christian and Islamic worlds from the
late Roman period through the late Middle Ages, but by the time of
its demise at the hands of the Ottomans in 1453 the Byzantine
empire was a shadow of its former self, restricted essentially to
the city of Constantinople, modern Istanbul.
