3Re: What would you consider the hallmarks of Byzantine culture?
- Apr 6, 2010Greetings Juliana,
I believe there is a "Byzantine Literature Sodalitas" in the works, so there will be some cultural activites starting around here soon. :)
My personal thoughts regarding "the hallmarks of Byzantine Culture" would include:
* The Orthodox Church
* A unique blending of Roman and Greek culture and identity
* A fascinating history and cultural heritage
* The preservation of ancient thought and philosophy
* A unique and beautiful tradition of art and literature
* A uniquie musical tradition
* A unique and beautiful style of architecture
There are more examples of course. The important thing to me at least is that "things Byzantine" are very recognizable - you know them when you see them! "Byzantine Culture" is unique, beautiful and therefore precious and deserving of both survival and revival.
