This book presents discussions by experts on all significant aspects of Byzantine Studies. Byzantine Studies deals with the history and culture of the Byzantine Empire, the eastern half of the Late Roman Empire, from the fourth to the fourteenth century.

Its centre was the city formerly known as Byzantium, refounded as Constantinople in ce, the present-day Istanbul. The first person who wrote on musical notation book was a Roman philosopher called Boethius back in the 6th Century. Boethius was the first person to record the use of letters for notes and he used 15 letters of the alphabet to represent the musical notes.

This became known as Boethian notation. It is not really known if he made this method up. Music is easier to study and share if it is written down.
