Hi Jeaneen,

You will find some clues at Constantelos, The Historical Development of Greek Orthodoxy. Check also Toynbee's, Runciman's and Woodhouse's books.

Don't forget that Greece in the course of time has not been the specific geographical area that it is today. Greece is where Greek is spoken and Greek culture is active. There is a geographically different Greece in the times of Alexander, different in the Byzantine millennium, different at the Homeric and at the Classical times. Therefore, to start thinking your subject you need to clarify what exactly you mean by the word Greece. In your case Byzantium is the Greece that you need to research.Add a note!
