abstract

The rebuilding of Constantinople after the so-called Dark Ages was a long-lasting process of more than four hundred years in which the appearance of the city changed continuously. Many still-existing buildings from the early period were restored and adapted to new purposes, while new buildings developed different architectural forms. Most old churches were rebuilt after a phase of decay, others were newly built in a novel and distinctly ‘medieval’ style.
