Title

The establishment of the Church of Greece: rival versions of Οrthodoxy, the nation and the revolution

Date

10 June 2021

Abstract

How was the ecclesiastical “heritage of 1821” made? How did the church question contribute to the formation of the “memory” and the meaning of 1821? Τhe Greek revolution was not only based from the beginning on the religious segregation that characterised the structure of the Ottoman Empire, but also included it in the formation of the new nation; at the same time it constituted a rupture with orthodox ecclesiastical power intertwined within the Ottoman context. Thus the revolution raised the issue of the church at the centre of a controversy that sealed the first 20 years of the new Greek state. And in which the “religion” issue is directly intertwined with politics and with opposing conceptions of the nation, of Orthodoxy, of the revolution itself.
