The Greek diaspora and the Greek Revolution

Subject - keywords


25 June 2021 - 27 June 2021


The aftermath of the turmoil that preceded the Greek Revolution of 1821 was intense in the Greek communities of Europe, most of whom were active in achieving liberation from the Ottoman yoke. Both on Italian soil, where there were numerous and prosperous Greek communities (Venice, Trieste, Livorno, Naples, etc.), as well as in Austria, Moldavia and the Russian Empire, prominent members of the Greek communities, such as merchants, sailors, teachers, clergy, hierarchs, printers, artists, and scholars, meet to participate sometimes actively and sometimes invisibly in the preparation and events that led to the event of the national renaissance. As part of the bicentenary celebrations marking the Greek Revolution of 1821, the Hellenic Institute of Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Studies in Venice organises, from 25 to 27 June 2021, an international academic conference to highlight the Hellenic diaspora and its contribution to the Greek Revolution. This topic includes issues such as the position and role of the Greek communities in the European cities in which they were active, their relations with the subjugated Hellenism, as well as the efforts they made to strengthen the liberation movements during the second half of the 18th century up to the proclamation of the revolution of 1821.
