Ottoman Athens: Archaeology, Topography, History” edited by Maria Georgopoulou and Konstantinos Thanasakis

“This collection of 12 essays was published by the Gennadius Library and the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation, with the support of the Association of the Philoi of the Gennadius Library.

The history of Athens has been of central importance to the Gennadius Library.  As a descendant of the Athenian Benizelos family, Joannes Gennadius was especially drawn to materials on the city during the Ottoman period. The similar interests of the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation have secured the publication of this book, a joint effort of two institutions that respect the exploration of history.

The project was conceived around the exhibition Ottoman Athens, 1458-1833, organized by the Gennadius Library in the Spring of 2015. A symposium on “The Topography of Ottoman Athens: Archaeology and Travel” inspired this edited volume.

Table of contents:

George Tolias, “The Ruined City Restored: Athens and the Fabric of Greece in Renaissance Geography”
