Russian Society and the Greek Revolution
Theophilus C. Prousis
"Prousis tells this story with admirable skill.... Will hold a major place in the growing library on Philhellenism in nineteenth-century Europe."—Russian Review
"Impressive.... No one interested in the rebellion of Alexander Ypsilantis, the rebirth of the Greek nation, or Russian-Ottman relations in the early nineteenth century can afford to ignore this volume."—American Historical Review
"A welcome contribution of great value."
In the 1820s the Greek War of Independence seized the imaginations of Romantics all across Europe. Lord Byron gave his life in the Greek cause, and scores of other writers and artists dedicated their talents to liberating the Greeks from the Ottoman yoke. Russians embraced Greek independence with a passion. Given the historical affinities that stretched from the Middle Ages, they could do no less.
