Title

The ecumenical patriarchs in the age of revolution

Date

06 November 2021

Abstract

“The paper will focus on the ways the Ecumenical Patriarchate dealt with – and ultimately absorbed – the tremendous vibrations caused by the Greek Revolution of 1821 in the Ottoman political system. It will address the problem of the possible ethnic origin of the 4 figures who became patriarchs during the 1820’s, emphasizing the case of Patriarch Agathangelos, who will dramatically close the last phase of this turbulent period. Finally, it will try to explain how, especially due to the latter patriarchy, the Patriarchate moved towards a reconstruction of the relationship between the laity and the clergy, which led to the emergence of “Neo-phanariot families”. The presentation will be based on the use of Greek, Ottoman, English, and Bulgarian sources.”
