Ljudmila PEKARSKA Jewellery from Princely Kiev and Byzantine Influence21 березня 2016
Ljudmila PEKARSKA: Kiev, one of the most ancient cities of Europe, was for three centuries the capital of the powerful East Slavonic state of Kievan Rus’ (10th–13th centuries). Prince Vladimir the Great, ruler of Kievan Rus’ (r. 980–1015) introduced Christianity to Rus’ from Byzantium, making it the new state religion in 988.
The event marked the beginning of a new era in art for Rus’ in general and for Kiev in particular, which accessed and absorbed the rich culture of the Byzantine Empire.
Strategically located on the steep banks of the river Dnieper, Kiev became the focal point of contact between Rus’ and the Byzantine Empire.
