The 1821 Revolution: Eleven historians trace the course of the struggle




This book is a miscellany in which prominent historians aptly approach the multifaceted event of the national struggle, the starting point of our national entity. The quality of the analysis, distributed in key thematic areas, contributes to the deepening of the knowledge about the Greek Revolution and allows us to understand it in many ways. For the Hellenic Foundation for Culture, the volume is a creative contribution, on the occasion of the bicentenary of 1821, a valuable legacy for the future.

With a unique collective edition as well as a series of lectures by distinguished historians, the Hellenic Cultural Foundation contributes to the celebration of the two hundred years since the Greek Revolution and honours the anniversary and the unique legacy it left, as a valuable legacy for future generations.

The texts of the book, as they emerge from the special editing of the content of the lectures, constitute, among others, an opportunity for reflection on the national struggle of 1821.

The substantiated scientific views are based on a comprehensive series of lectures on the struggle, philhellenism, the Enlightenment, the constitutions, which contribute to the deepening of our knowledge of the Greek Revolution, and the development of a new philhellenism.

The multiple aspects of the great national event which led to the creation of the new nation-state are systematically and methodically analysed. The completeness and quality of the lectures, which bear the stamp of worthy scholars, allow us to understand in depth the complexity of the struggle and to experience in its entirety the revolution that founded our state as an entity.
