Title

The Ionians islanders between old and new empires at the dawn of the “century of revolutions”

Date

Abstract

"The Septinsular Republic was the first state to operate in the area where the Greek state was to be founded. Thanks to various circumstances, and especially to the temporary alliance between the Russians and the Ottomans, in the context of the second anti-Napoleonic coalition, an autonomous state was established in the Ionian Sea, but with limited independence in domestic and foreign policy. As has been pointed out, this state was a foretaste of Greek independence, an experiment in which all the components necessary for a modern state (constitution, state language, economic policy, state-recognised religion, etc.) were tested. This paper focuses on the perceptions of the establishment and operation of this state by Greek and European public opinion. This question is part of a broader discussion about the foundations of European philhellenism and, in particular, about the participation of the Greeks themselves in its formation."
