Abstract

In the context of the national bicentenary of the 1821 Greek Revolution, the Holy Diocese of Mytilini organizes a talk on “Ignatius, metropolitan of Hungaro-Wallachia: A pillar of Grece's national regeneration”. The speaker presents the historical context of Lesvos from 1453 and the bad conditions that had been created on the island due to the Ottomans. One of the personalities who were not active on the island but connected their name with the revolution was the metropolitan of Hungaro-Wallachia Ignatius of Lesvos. The speaker presents his life, his studies and his education, but mainly focuses on his ecclesiastical duties and his rich educational work. Due to his revolutionary activity and education he created enemies, such as Ali Pasha, and was forced to flee abroad. Its purpose was the education and training of young people. For this reason, he founded schools, colleges, libraries and together with Anthimos Gazis and Ioannis Kapodistrias helped the Greeks in the national and spiritual field. He is a prominent and charismatic personality who loved knowledge and learning.
