What power did Constantine have in the Byzantine Empire?
How did Justinian I take over so much territory?
What are the two principles of the Justinian Code?
1. The Great Schism of 1054 was the split between the Eastern and Western Christian Churches. In 1054, relations between the Greek speaking Eastern of the Byzantine empire and the Latin speaking Western traditions within the Christian Church reached a terminal crisis. This crisis led to the separation between the Eastern and Western churches and is referred to as the Great Schism of 1054. The Christian Church split along doctrinal, theological, linguistic, political, and geographic lines. The split, the Great Schism of 1054, led to the development of the modern Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches. 2.By the fourth century, Rome was under attack by barbarian invaders from north of the Italian peninsula. In AD330, the Emperor Constantine moved his government from Rome to a city almost 1500 miles to the east called Byzantium. Constantine wanted a city safe from foreign invasion. The emperor renamed the city "Constantinople," which means "city of Constantine." Historians refer to the Eastern Roman Empire as the Byzantine Empire. He was the only Christian emperor of the Byzantine Empire. Since he was the emperor, he had all the power. 3. Justin’s supporters also sought to enhance their influence in the new government. But the most powerful and influential man was Justinian. It was Justinian who helped the emperor to heal the schism in the church left by Anastasius. To this end, Justinian willingly agreed to the demands from Rome for the sake of a reunited church. It was Justinian who had the general Vitalian murdered when he threatened their power. In the process Justinian replaced him as Master of the Soldiers. It was Justinian who built churches to beautify the city. It was also Justinian who took care to manage foreign affairs. Justinian also went all out to win the support of the people and the senators in Constantinople. Justinian was intelligent, ambitious, pious and energetic. Expecting to inherit the empire one day, Justinian knew that he needed to start cultivating his support early. This was why he spared no expense in wooing the people and the senators to establish his reputation. He also had a fine eye for talent and employed men for their ability, regardless of their background. As a result, he earned the loyalty of many capable ministers and generals which helped to fulfil his ambitions
thank you :D
got any idea of what number 4 is?
Oh, I didn't see that you posted a 4th question. I'll check it out
And you can just sum up what I said for questions 1-3
4. At its simplest, the purpose Justinian had in mind was to organize the laws in the Byzantine Empire. It was a mammoth task, as you might well imagine. In doing this, the laws were put down in writing, presumably some old laws that had outlived their usefulness were discarded, and laws were enacted that dealt with situations that were contemporary at the time or could be foreseen as necessary for future generations. Justinian Code was divided into four parts: 1. The Institutes served as a textbook in law for students and lawyers. 2. The Digest was a casebook covering many trials and decisions. 3. The Codex was a collection of statutes and principles, and 4. The Novels contained new proposed laws. This legal code became the foundation of law in most western countries.
