The Byzantine Empire was a vast and powerful civilization with origins that can be traced to A.D., when the Roman emperor Constantine I dedicated a “New Rome”. PREFACE. Titus Livius, the illustrious author of the Roman History, descended from a noble family in Rome, and was born at Patavium, now called Padua, in Italy, in the th year of Rome, fifty-eight years before the commencement of the Christian æra.
