Who are the byzantines?


2 Answers

The term “Byzantine Empire” came into use during the 18th and 19th centuries, but it would've been alien to the Empire's ancient inhabitants. For them, Byzantium was a continuation of the Roman Empire, which had merely moved its seat of power from Rome to a new eastern capital in Constantinople.
