The Philhellenes of the Western Hemisphere and the Contribution of the Americans to the Greek Revolution of 1821 – Special Webinar by Demetrios Stavrakas
Hellenic-American Cultural Center & Museum board member Demetrios Stavrakas is presenting a webinar about “Philhellenes of the West – American Contributions to Greece in 1821”
Since ancient times, Philhellenes, friends of Greece and Greek culture, have existed worldwide. In 1821, four hundred years after the fall of the Byzantine empire and the Ottoman occupation, the Greeks decided to fight for their independence and freedom. Many people in Europe and the Americas were inspired by the Enlightenment era of the West. During that time they believed that philosophy, science, the arts and many aspects of daily life had their foundations in ancient Greece. Learn more about this pivotal time in Greece’s history!
This webinar is offered free by Hellenic-American Cultural Center & Museum via Zoom.
Late June 2021 Special Exhibit: “In the Shadow of the Acropolis” will be on display at the museum. More information to come.
