  6. 6. Economy and Growth <ul><li>In 476 AD, after Rome fell, Constantinople was considered the capital of the Byzantine Empire. </li></ul><ul><li>   Starting in 527 AD, Constantinople was boosted by the legacies of Emperor Justinian I and his people, such as the Hagia Sophia, the major Christian church, and the Corpus Juris Civilis or &quot;body of civil laws&quot; that was a collection of Romans' laws that would later lead to the International Law in use today. </li></ul><ul><li>   Starting in 565 AD, the city's nature was growing more and more like that of the Greeks. </li></ul><ul><li>   Through the 700's 800's, Muslim Arabs attempted sieges on the city, and eventually the Byzantine Empire shrank. </li></ul><ul><li>   During the 600's, wars and plagues caused a population decline. Because of this, the Byzantine economy became mostly agricultural because people needed to produce enough food for them to eat. They lost a lot of land to the Muslim Arabs, and when they lost Egypt, they lost the grain that came with that land. Following the Arab's domination, trade was almost completely centralized in Constantinople and the Black Sea. Even though the population and prosperity grew, most of the people were still rural. </li></ul>
