The Byzantine Art

The Byzantine Art designates the early Christian artistic production of the first centuries of the Christian era. The early Christian art lies in the orbit of the imperial Rome and its moment of maximum splendor is between the first decades of the fourth century and the beginning of the sixth century. The Christian iconography gradually developed in accordance with the progress of the theological reflections. Christianity spread through the Jewish minority , which kept commercial and cultural ties with the homeland Palestine : when St. Paul visited the city in 61 AD , he found an already Christian community organized . There were domus ecclesiae ( house of the assembly ) , the precursors of the churches. Of these buildings there are few archaeological remains , because after the freedom of religion enshrined in the Edict of Constantine ( 313), many basilicas were built on.
A consequence of the belief in the resurrection of the body , preached by Christ , it was the custom to bury the bodies of the dead , in places underground called later catacombs (from the greek kata kymbas = at the caves ) . There are also pagan and Jewish catacombs , such as those of Via Latina in Rome , dating from the second half of the fourth century. In the third century Rome had seven diakonias.
The art readjusts shapes and symbols on the basis of the Christian religion. The artistic production of the period has left us mosaics , sarcophagies , frescoes with scenes of hunting, pastoral scenes , scenes of important episodes from the Old and New Testament. The aniconic , namely the prohibition of depicting God (Exodus XX , 3-5 ) , applied to the third century, meant the need to use symbols to allude to the deity : the sun, the lamb , the symbol of the martyrdom of Christ , or fish , whose greek name ( ichthys ) was an acronym for " Iesus Christos TheouYiosSoter " (Jesus Christ Son of God Saviour ) . The cock , the peacock , the pastor , and then a bearded or beardless Christ , and blessing Christ ; Christ with the imperial insignia: this and more can be discovered in the churches of Rome.
The assembly of the people was gathered in three-or five -aisled basilica , architectural model based on that of the civil basilicas in Rome. From the beginning of the fourth century, the basilicas began to spread to the central plant , especially those dedicated to the Apostles or martyrs.To speak of Byzantine art we have to get to the fifth century , when the Roman Empire split into two sections , one began to develop an independent art movement which had, as its center, Costantinopoli. The artists of Costantinopoli drew on trends in Late Antiquity , in particular, the provincial and plebeian current. The Basilica of St. John Lateran is the oldest of Rome and is an example of alternating between classical and Hellenistic popular style. In this art the artists give more importance to the symbols than to the real representations.

The Baroque Art

The Baroque style that you admire in the Papal Rome was established with the Counter-Reformation, a strategic policy doctrine of the Catholic Church in opposition to the Protestant Church . The goal was to educate the faithful to the Catholic doctrine and persuade heretics and doubters of the truth that exists in the Catholic Church. The Order of the Jesuits and the Filipinos were the most important promoters of the Catholic restoration.
Rome offers many baroque itineraries and the visual effect sometimes is predominant. The baroque is the spirit of an age. Among the artists who left their mark in Rome, two rivals in architecture must be mentioned: Bernini and Borromini. Among the painters : Pietro da Cortona , Guido Reni, the Carracci Brothers, Andrea Pozzo, Giovan Battista Gaullicalled the Baciccia , Caravaggio.
