RHIGAS VELESTINLIS: THE PROTOMARTYR OF THE GREEK REVOLUTION

Author: WOODHOUSE, C.M. #: 22705
Rhigas of Velestino (1757-1798), popularly known as Rhigas Pheraios, is one of the greatest national heroes of modern Greece. He first conceived the possibility of a national revolution to free his country from the domination of its Ottoman overlords; his aim, however, was not simply an armed rebellion but a regeneration of his people, through education, literature and social and political awareness. This book is the first comprehensive study of Rhigas' s life and ideas in English.
