Abstract

The exhibition explores the dialogue between iconic works of the European and Modern Green Enlightenment from the rich collection of the National Library of Greece, which date from the 18th to the early 19th centuries: manuscripts, printed documents, foreign language works as well as their translations in Greek. Works by famous thinkers of the European Enlightenment (Locke, Voltaire, the Encyclopedists, Beccaria etc.) are exhibited together with their Greek translations by significant representatives of the Neohellenic Enlightenment (Eugenios Voulgaris, Rigas Feraios Velestinlis and Adamantios Korais).
