Romaiika: Towards a History of the Greek Lands under Ottoman Rule
The seminar will discuss the history of the Greek lands under Ottoman rule, between
the fourteenth and the early nineteenth century, as a shared history of Christian and
Muslim communities: to the south of Mount Olympus, more or less, these communities
shared also the Greek language, Romaiika. The Greeks were all around the Greek lands,
the Christian Orthodox Romioi. Evliya Çelebi, the famous Ottoman traveler who strolled
around the Greek lands in the second half of the seventeenth century wrote that most
of the Muslims in this geography, minorities in terms of population, were also Rumyor,
converts from Christianity, and mostly Greek speaking. Daniel Phillipides and Gregorios
Konstantas, in their Modern Geography (Vienna, 1791) also used for the Muslims in the
Greek lands the same term Roumiogyrismata, i.e., converts from Christianity. The
seminar will address the interactions between these communities in the shaping of the
history of the Greek lands under Ottoman rule.
