The Byzantine era began after the fall of the Roman Empire in the 4th Century AD. It lasted for more than a thousand years, and during that time the arts flourished under the influence of Christianity.

What used to be the Eastern Roman Empire (the Balkans, Turkey and the Middle East) became packed with magnificent churches which featured priceless works of art.

Through paintings and frescos, artifacts and mosaics, the Byzantines celebrated God and the lifes of Jesus and the Saints.

The Andreas Malecos collection features photographs of frescos that appear in churches in Greece and Cyprus.
