In the classical Greek civilization, the ancient Romans were the centre point of the civilization is around the Roman cultures that had a great impact on the overall civilization during this period. During the western civilization where the Medieval civilization was evident, the Greeks had a chance to alter their way of life after having interacted with the European cultures which made the Greeks change their way of life. Western civilization was quite dynamic as it contained several aspects of Christian and secular humanism which were absent during the classical Greek civilization (Noble, 2009).
With the Medieval era, the western culture was infiltrated into the Greek culture such that items such as customs, norms, values and ethical concepts of the western world found their way into the Greek way of life. This is also the era during which Romanticism was introduced and established in the Greek world. The post classical era saw the emergence of diverse religious groups from the original Christians such that the establishment of the Roman Empire coincided with the emergence of these smaller Christian groups from the larger religion (Noble, 2009).
During the classical era of the Greek civilization, aspects of scientific or philosophical revolutions were not very common among the ancient Greeks as in the Medieval era. Consequently, most of the modern day activities include architecture in Greece were introduced during the western civilization era due to increased interactions among different European cultures hence exchange of information and ideas was common. Similarly, during this Medieval era, the spread of religion as a result of Greek civilization was intense such that the rapid spread of Islam and Christianity, as well as, emergence of the Roman Catholic is backdated to this period (Noble, 2009).
