Historians have long speculated on the role played by the Enlightenment in the rise of nationalism in Eastern Europe and the Balkans. The present volume offers a new perspective on this subject through an examination of the Greek Enlightenment, its aspirations, and its relationship to the larger European Republic of Letters. Scholars of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe will gain access in these pages to rare and in some cases never before translated works from the time period; works that offer fresh and far-reaching insights into the nature, origin and development of nationalist movements.
