We see this especially in the architecture of the time, which often resembled or modeled Roman architecture, especially in the churches or basilicas. We can also observe the similarity between art of the time and art of other cultures in the sculpture of the time, which often depicted it’s subject by using similar techniques. We see the subject matter of other cultures and times, though, sometimes altered or brought into a new meaning. Many symbols were adopted and their meaning changed.
