Okay, JohnGreek.(Original post by JohnGreek)
People need to start realising that taking over a city =/= continuing the religious or cultural legacy of something
It wasn't just "taking over a city"; the Eastern Roman Empire (as they were called at the time) were no more after that. The Ottomans then inherited many things from the Byzantines, from their political setup to the design of their mosques (which resembled the churches of the time).
What does this mean for you?
