The Byzantine Empire a place with beautiful jewelry imported from Africa, a magnificent icons. That is where I am going on my field trip. I live in Jerusalem and my 12th class is going Constantinople to see some of the icons even though I strongly believe in not to use icons that is why I am in the Roman Catholic Church because we believe in not using icons.
