Early Christian and Byzantine architecture
Byzantine architecture , building style of Constantinople now Istanbul , formerly ancient Byzantium after ad Byzantine architects were eclectic , at first drawing heavily on Roman temple features. Their combination of the basilica and symmetrical central-plan circular or polygonal religious structures resulted in the characteristic Byzantine Greek-cross-plan church, with a square central mass and four arms of equal length. The most distinctive feature was the domed roof. To allow a dome to rest above a square base, either of two devices was used: the squinch an arch in each of the corners of a square base that transforms it into an octagon or the pendentive.

When the emperor Constantine recognized Christianity as the official state religion early in the fourth century, Christians were able to practice their faith openly. Whereas before they had met in secret in the catacombs and in other non-public places, they were now free to act as an organized and recognized cult. The first Christian meeting places were private houses and it was only when the religious ritual became more formalized that a special building was needed. It was probably to divorce themselves from the old religions that the forms of the "pagan" Greek and Roman temples were not utilized for Christian worship. The long rectangular form of the civil basilica was easily adapted for this use, although some changes had to be made.
Emperor Constantine recognizes the Christian religion and adopts it as a state religion. Rome finally splits into two; the Western and Eastern Empire A. Rome is sacked by Visgoth and Vandals A.
