Unpublished Archives of British Philhellenism
The BSA is excited to announce the launch of the webpage for the new research project, Unpublished Archives of British Philhellenism During the Greek Revolution of 1821. In the context of commemorations of the bicentenary of the Greek Revolution that began in 1821, in collaboration with the National Library of Greece, and with generous support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), a team at the BSA is creating a new digital archive that will go fully live in 2024 and include original items from the unpublished archives of Frank Abney Hastings and George Finlay, housed in the BSA Archives, along with transcriptions and descriptive commentary that will be fully searchable.
Upcoming highlights of the project include an international conference, to be held at the premises of the National Library of Greece, Stavros Niarchos Cultural Center, Athens, from 15 to 17 March 2023, and a volume of essays based upon the papers given, to be published in the BSA’s Modern Greek & Byzantine Studies series. Updates on the project, including regular blog posts, will appear on this dedicated webpage, Unpublished Archives of British Philhellenism, and on the BSA’s social media channels.
