Part of the Mary and Michael Jaharis Galleries, this space features the arts of Byzantium, the empire based in Constantinople that ruled from 330–1453 C.E. In addition to early liturgical and personal religious objects, the gallery exhibits secular art from later Byzantine centuries, including carved ivory caskets, stunning cloisonné enamels, and ceramics.
Also on view are a monumental sarcophagus and gold glass from Rome, Judaic objects, Kievan Rus' enamels, and Armenian manuscripts.
