Abstract

The Echo of Cyprus 1821-2021, in collaboration with important national, social and cultural institutions, organises a series of events, lectures and conferences to highlight the bicentenary of the national regeneration. The purpose of the lectures is to highlight the contribution of Cyprus to the struggle, as an integral part of Hellenism, as well as to highlight the bicentenary of the 1821 Revolution, as an occasion for national reconstruction and redefining of our course and our historical continuity, as well as paying tribute to those who shed their blood on the altar of the freedom of the nation. This event highlights the contribution to the Greek revolution of a small village of Cyprus, Omodos, which despite the great effort to suppress uprisings by the Turkish commanders, managed to become known for his action and because of the Monastery of the Holy Cross. One of the local heroes who stood out was Dosifios Oikonomou, patron saint of the monastery, a national martyr who was initiated into the Philiki Etaireia.
