    BYZANTINE BRONZE PENDANT CROSSES CIRCA 6TH CENTURY AD, SCARCE EXAMPLE, FROM THE "BECKETT'S BLOOD" EXHIBITION AS SHOWN ON BBC TV  



 

A scarce pair of original Byzantine crosses, circa 6th century AD

Overall good condition, pendant loops are no longer intact, age wear as shown

Byzantine crosses originated as early as the 4th century in Constantinople and represent a fusion of Roman, Greek and Christian imagery and style. Different designs developed over time, but the features of most Byzantine crosses differ from the simple straight cross with a single crossbar that is common in western Europe and areas it influenced

The Byzantine Empire (or Byzantium) was the direct continuation of the Roman Empire during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, centered on the capital of Constantinople. It is also referred to as the Eastern Roman Empire, primarily in the context of Late Antiquity, while the Western Roman Empire was still in existence. Both "Byzantine Empire" and "Eastern Roman Empire" are historiographical terms coined and applied in later centuries; its citizens continued to refer to their empire as the Roman Empire or Romania (Ῥωμανία) throughout its existence

 While the Western Roman Empire fragmented and collapsed in the 5th century, the Eastern half continued to thrive, existing for an additional thousand years until it fell to the Ottoman Turks in 1453. During most of its existence, the empire was the most powerful economic, cultural, and military force in Europe

This beautiful original example, was exhibited as part of the 'Beckett's Blood Exhibition' shown at Canterbury and Kent  Shown as part of a year-long public exhibition in Canterbury, telling the story of Thomas Beckett and the circumstances of his murder and of the pilgrimages to his shrine

The exhibition was also featured on BBC television
