On Tuesday, March 26, an event for the presentation of the Proceedings Volume of the Fifth International Scientific Conference on “War conflicts and places of consecration of the liberation struggle during the Revolution of 1821” took place yesterday.
The event was attended by the representative of the Archbishop Ieronymos of Athens and All Greece, Bishop Iakovos of Thavmakos, Metropolitan Ieremias of Gortys and Megalopolis, Metropolitan Ignatios of Demetrias and Almyros, President of the Special Synodical Committee for Cultural Identity, Metropolitan Damaskinos Velestino, representatives of Holy Metropolises, and professors.
The event was co-ordinated by the Secretary of the Special Synodical Committee for Cultural Identity Vartholomeos Antoniou – Triantaphyllidis.
In his message, Archbishop Ieronymos said: “The war conflicts during the period of the Liberation Struggle of 1821 revealed to the future generations the deepest wish of the enslaved Greek Nation, guided by its ideal of liberty. This undiagnosed burning desire of our forefathers over the centuries of slavery becomes readable in its results.”
