LA CIVILIZACION BIZANTINA:CONSTANTINOPLA | www.curiosomundoazul.blogspot.com | "Un viaje por la Cultura Bizantina" | Scoop.it

En el año 330, el EmperadorConstantino el Grande fundó una ciudad, Constantinopla, en el lugar ocupado anteriormente por la colonia griega de Bizancio. Situada en la península de los Balcanes, donde el estrecho del Bósforo comunica al mar de Mármara con el mar Negro, su situación estratégica era inmejorable.

Cuando en el año 395 el EmperadorTeodosio divide sus dominios entre sus hijos (Honorio, Occiente; Arcadio, Oriente) puede decirse que comienza la historia del Imperio Bizantino separado del de Occidente, pero heredero del legado cultural de Roma.

History of Constantinople

Byzantium had first been reconstructed in the time of Septimius Severus not just as a Roman city, but modelled on Rome itself, on and around seven hills. Later Constantine the Great chose it as his new capital, renaming it Constantinople, and it remained the capital of the eastern part of the Roman empire

Byzantine Religious Iconography and Icon Art

Byzantine Iconography refers to the distinct tradition and style embodied in Orthodox religious images painted during the Byzantine Empire which lasted from the 5th century to the fall of its capital, Constantinople, in the year 1453. This rich tradition continues to this day, over 1,500 years after the first images were created! This enduring heritage is a testament to the powerful religious experience that these images evoke.

 The purpose of icons is first to create reverence in worship and second to serve as an existential link between the worshipper and God. Icons have been called prayers, hymns, sermons in form and color. They are the visual Gospel. As St. Basil said, "What the word transmits through the ear, the painting silently shows through the image, and by these two means, mutually accompanying one another...we receive knowledge of one and the same thing."

Roman Byzantium

Roman Byzantium | "Un viaje por la Cultura Bizantina" | Scoop.it

Seen from Rome, Byzantium was the city at the end of the Via Egnatia, the large road that the Romans had built from the Adriatic Sea through Macedonia to Bosphorus. Byzantium had been consistently pro-Rome (cf. Tacitus, Annals,12.62), and was recognized as an important ally, a civitas libera et foederata. It was about the size of Pompeii, with some 15,000 people living within the walls and about as many people living in the countryside.

History

1. Overview
Byzantine music is the medieval sacred chant of all Christian churches following the Eastern Orthodox rite. This tradition, principally encompassing the Greek-speaking world, developed in Byzantium from the establishment of its capital, Constantinople, in 330 until its conquest in 1453. It is undeniably of composite origin, drawing on the artistic and technical productions of the classical age and on Jewish music, and inspired by the plainsong that evolved in the early Christian cities of Alexandria, Antioch, and Ephesus. In common with other dialects in the East and West, Byzantine music is purely vocal and exclusively monodic. Apart from the acclamations (polychronia), the texts are solely designed for the several Eastern liturgies and offices. The most ancient evidence suggests that hymns and Psalms were originally syllabic or near-syllabic in style, stemming, as they did, from pre-oktoēch congregational recitatives. Later, with the development of monasticism, at first in Palestine and then in Constantinople, and with the augmentation of rites and ceremonies in new and magnificent edifices (such as Hagia Sophia), trained choirs, each with its own leader (the protopsáltes for the right choir; the lampadários for the left) and soloist (the domestikos or kanonarch), assumed full musical responsibilities. Consequently after ca. 850 there began a tendency to elaborate and to ornament, and this produced a radically new melismatic and ultimately kalophonic style.

Historia del Arte Bizantino | Constantinopla, la nueva Roma | "Un viaje por la Cultura Bizantina" | Scoop.it

El establecimiento en Bizancio de familias patricias romanas, la división de la ciudad en colinas y barrios, como Roma, y el decreto en que se ordenaba fuese llamada "Nueva Roma" mantuvieron la creencia de que Bizancio, o Constantinopla, como se la llamó, no fue en su origen más que una gran colonia romana que, por el capricho de un emperador, se estableció en los estrechos que separan a Europa de Asia. Aunque ya Diocleciano se había establecido en Nicomedia y en Split; y Constantino, preocupado por la misma necesidad de poseer una capital en Oriente, se fijaba en la pequeña población griega de Bizancio. Era ciudad oscura, que había tenido hasta entonces participación insignificante en la Historia. Su asiento resultaba favorecido por la vecindad de las canteras de mármol del Proconeso, en la ribera asiática, donde quizá florecieran los talleres de marmolistas que enviaron capiteles y relieves a las más lejanas ciudades del Imperio.

In 1974, with great love and respect for tradition, a small family business started making Byzantine icons entirely by hand, under the guidance of its founder, Georgios Ginis. 

Using a special process for aging metal, wood, and icon painting, as well as top quality materials, we create unique true copies of old icons, highlighting them as unique works of art.
