Abstract

The outbreak of the Greek Revolution and its condemnation by the Holy Alliance led to extensive articles and publications by its philhellenic supporters, but also by its opponents. Between 1821 and 1833, pamphlets were published in many languages, most of them in French, which were widely circulated and translated from one language to another. Their argument revolved, among other things, at two main poles that touched on the nature of the revolutionary event: the question of its legitimacy and its liberal political partisanship. The presentation follows philhellenic discourse as well as its opposing response and the development of their arguments that were formulated right from the beginning in relation to these concepts.
