The lecture will explore the multifaceted relationships between religion (Greek-Orthodoxy) and the revolutionary movement that led to the 1821 revolution. It shall address: a) the political significance of religion within Ottoman society and in particular the confessional model [millet system] as a blueprint for the organization of State and society; b) the multitude of actors involved in the pre-1821 national awakening period and their relationship to the Church; and c) the key role of Orthodox Christianity as a cultural marker for the crystallization of post-1821 Greek identity.
