Title

Burial monuments at Athens First Cemetery: Warriors’ tombs–authors’ tombs

Type specialization

Weapons and words have always been a way of fighting. In the case of the Greek state, both contributed to claims and the formation of a national identity. A particularly interesting research entitled “Burial Monuments at Athens First Cemetery: Warriors’ Tombs–Authors’ Tombs”, prepared by a research team of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, comprising Georgia Antonopoulou and Michael Giochalas, has been completed.

The research, which was co-financed by Greece and the European Union (European Social Fund) through the Operational Program “Human Resource Development, Education and Lifelong Learning”, located and recorded the burial monuments of the fighters and authors in Athens First Cemetery. At the same time, it allowed approaches concerning social, political, genealogical, economic and artistic issues. In addition, it carried out the comparative analysis of the burial monuments. The research questions, in addition to the identification, number, space, type and epigrams of the monuments, which naturally contribute to the enrichment of historical knowledge, also include the choice of the ideal depiction of life, as well as the involvement of the state authority or municipal authority in it.
