BENÁTKY A BYZANCIA V 5. – 9. STOROČÍ (VZÁJOMNÉ SÚVISLOSTI)
[Venice and Byzantium During the 5th – 9th Centuries (Mutual Connections)]
Abstract: The time and place, where an important event in Slavonic history took place, was an impetus to write the referred article. That event was the dispute with the so called trilingualists in Venice in the year 867. Our goal is not to deal with this event in detail, but to use it as one of the factors which influenced and made relations and mutual connections between Venice and Byzantium over a broad time range. Except the mentioned factor we focus on the further factors of interferences between Venice and Constantinople (the Byzantine Empire). The time when Venice was founded was a period which is clearly and logically connected with the Byzantine influence and thus we deal with this phase of development too. Within the framework of the given topic and time we describe only some selected noticeable interwoven factors – e.g. the emergence of the so called Byzantine Venice and its circumstances, the status of Venice as an part of the Exarchate of Ravenna, the position of Venice in the conflict between Byzantines and Franks.
