Title

The beginnings of parliamentarism in the constitutions of the struggle

Date

Abstract

"On 1 January 1822, less than a year after the start of the Greek Revolution, in the liberated provinces of the modern Greek state, more or less four constitutions were in force, three local ones and one national, the Provisional Government of Epidaurus. In the years that followed, two more national ones were to be added, the constitutions of Astros (1823) and Troezen (1827).

How can this constitutional multiplicity be explained? Is it due, as the prevailing interpretation claims, to the indomitable and democratic mindset of the Greeks? Or perhaps in an attempt to reconcile conflicting and often conflicting strong local and social interests?

The lecture attempts to answer these questions, starting from the constitutional texts themselves and proceeding to their application and non-application in practice."
