Was the result of the interaction of both the ancient Greek tradition and the other eastern influence and religiosity. With the prevalence of Christianity, the Byzantine style was characterized by means of a purely religious art aimed not so much the search of beauty and harmony as interiority, the symbolism and the submission of religious emotion.
