|With the establishment of the Capital of the
Roman Empire sleepy little Byzantium was thrust into a major role. The
city became not only the First City of the Empire, but also the second
most important See in all of Christianity.
Because of this role the Church of Byzantium played a major role in the development of Liturgical traditions that would spread throughout the Middle East. There are fourteen Churches that follow the Byzantine Liturgy, yet all have their own variations and history. Each of these Churches may be studied by selecting the appropriate link from the menu on the left.
