ANTIQUITY & PHILHELLENISM

A veneration of antiquity and philhellenism are related notions, the former a cause, the latter its effect. Both ideas dominated the European Enlightenment of the 18th and 19th centuries and boosted a wave of support for the insurrection of the Greeks towards throwing off the Ottoman yoke and re-establishing a nation and state in the cradle of democracy. This aspect of history, which so gripped intellectuals, poets and artists in Europe and America, which also stirred the common people and indissolubly united Europe and Greece, unfolds in the works of the Thanasis and Marina Martinos collection.
