|In the case of the Hellenic bibliography, starting from the great composition of Constantine Paparrigopoulos for the unified and continuous Greek national history and its tripartite distinction (antiquity-Byzantium-modern era), a series of issues have been raised, such as the genesis of the Greek nation and its historical path, the Greek identity during the ages and the meaning of the terms that it forms the core of this volume. In recent years, there has developed in Greece a vigorous reflection on identity issues, in particular in their connection to the concept of “Greekness”. The recent scholarship has enriched our knowledge, refined our historical understanding and contributed to new critical approaches. In fact, the issue has been addressed not only the academic historiography, but also in public history, given the particular importance of which the historical past has in Greece as an experiential relationship, as a research issue but also as a legitimizing agent of currents policy goals. The result was a dialogue that, often, from topical situations, was sometimes characterized by aggression, within the limits of polemic. Τhis volume includes studies by scientists of different schools, opinions and generations, from Greek and foreign universities and research institutes; studies covering the wide thematic and relating to examples from different historical experiences and socio-political environments: the ancient and Byzantine worlds, the periods of Latin and the Ottoman rule, the Greek diaspora, the modern Greek Revolution and the establishment and history of the Greek state until the early 20th century.|
