Constantine also enacted several laws which appear to be based in Christian faith, many of which are still visible in modern society.
The Byzantine Empire was a successful maritime-based civilization that connected Europe and Asia. There is much debate on whether the Byzantine Empire was a new empire or a continuation of the Roman Empire. Although the Byzantine Empire is made up of old parts of Eastern Rome, it was it’s own new civilization because of different religious beliefs, new advancements in technology, and a far superior economy to that of the Romans. The Byzantines valued Christianity and religious values much more than the Romans ever did.
