Philiki Etaireia: Revolutionary activity and secret societies in modern Europe

Date

2017

Abstract

The members of the Philiki Etaireia, either as “moral beings”, as Ioannis Filemon notes, or as “second-class people”, as Apostolos Vakalopoulos observes, have preoccupied and will continue to preoccupy historians for many years. But they will also be a source of interest regarding the collective memory of societies from which the Philiki came, acted, travelled and envisioned the leading event in modern European history: the Greek Revolution. A revolution that took place not only by actions but also by words. In this volume, the reader will find original historical approaches and rich bibliography on the Philiki Etaireia. The first part examines the social, political and ideological spaces of postwar Europe and Ottoman-occupied Greece, in which the secret societies and the Philiki Etaireia were born. In the second part, the research is preoccupied by the Philiki Etaireia as a national revolutionary secret organisation with a clear political goal, as well as part of post-revolutionary narratives, such as the memoirs of fighters and the history textbooks of primary and secondary education.
