Abstract

The programme of the Parents’ School–Open University of Katerini for 2020–2021 includes talks by distinguished speakers to mark the bicentenary of the 1821 Greek Revolution. Academics, hierarchs, politicians, doctors, etc., from America, Russia, Greece, Cyprus and Mount Athos illustrate with their research aspects of the epic struggle to liberate Greece from Ottoman rule. The two presentations of the tenth event concern life in Pieria under Ottoman rule and the revolution in Macedonia respectively. The first speaker tries to interpret the historical context in which the mountain villages and the refuge were created as living communities in Pieria and to answer key questions such as how do the existing records of various authors assist in determining when they were founded, what new data exists from Ottoman sources for the mountain villages in the 16th century and what was life like in mountain refuges under Turkish rule. The second speaker refers to the value of the revolution in Macedonia and its strategic importance for the Greek Revolution as a whole. According to the speaker, the sacrifice of the Macedonians helped the Morea and Rumeli prepare properly. The contribution of the Philiki Etaireia in the region is also important.
