The classic achievements of Rome, Ravenna and Constantinople are of course included, but so are discoveries in outposts of Syria, the Balkans and North Africa. The early forms of Christian art and architecture were rudimentary, since they were essentially practical. Constantine's support of The Christian Church gave it new impetus. Called upon to assume a moral and cultural leadership in the declining Roman Empire, the Church rallied to its cause able craftsmen who produced a unity and cohesion in its art and architecture.
