April 18, 2012 (Wednesday) Istanbul was Constantinople. Istanbul, Turkey-formerly Constantinople, was the capital of the Roman Empire and the Eastern Roman Empire (subsequently the Byzantine Empire). Although sacked by the Fourth Crusade and later conquered and transformed by the Ottomans, modern Istanbul still possesses many sites preserved from the 1,000 years it was the capital of the Byzantine Empire. In this lecture, YVCC instructor of Political Science, Dr. Timothy Jeske, will take you on a visual tour of the Byzantine sites of the city, emphasizing the churches, monuments, military architecture, and religious art of Constantinople.
