Christianised Roman Empire
By this we mean:
We exclude other states which, although they may have considered
themselves to be spiritually
"the Roman Empire", nevertheless in secular terms represent
distinct civilisations less deeply rooted in
classical Hellenism, e.g
the Frankish Roman Empire or
the Russian Empire.
See also Pre-Constantinian
Roman Empire for pagan times.
- The Western Roman Empire from Constantine I to Romulus Augustulus
- The Eastern Roman Empire from Constantine I to Constantine XI
(the "Byzantine" Empire)
- Certain independent states, such as the Despotate of Epirus,
which shared the culture of the Eastern Empire and viewed themselves
as extensions of it.
