Philhellenism before philhellenism: The vision of education and the maturity of the idea of the nation through the writings of Greek students at the University of Padua (17th–18th century)

Abstract

"In the long period prior to the Greek Revolution, the University of Padua was the highest intellectual institution for the education and training of thousands of Greek students, significantly contributing, among others, to the formation of the conditions that helped mature the idea of the Greek nation. The written works of these students, published mainly in printing houses of Padua and Venice during the 17th and 18th centuries, apart from creating awareness for Greek identity among the authors, highlight a dynamic communication between Greeks and the local community. this constant contact, which was also recorded – albeit differently – in almost all centres of the Greek diaspora of the Italian Peninsula, gradually contributed to the formation and flourishing of a sense of sympathy on the part of the Italian scholars of the time for enslaved Greece, partially providing the foundation for the phenomenon which, in the early 19th century will become known as philhellenism."

From the book of abstracts of the conference, as it was published on Intiative's 1821-2021 website.
