The Old Calendarists and the Rise of Religious Conservatism in Greece

Dimitri Kitsikis
Translated from the French by Novice Patrick and Bishop Chrysostomos

Number XVIII of Monographic Supplement Series

“In all of my writings, and in a systematic way since 1967, I have endeavored to prove that Greece is part of the large family of non-Western countries. To this end, I have created the concepts of an ‘intermediate region’ (a region of civilization, including Greece, in Eurasia, between West and East), of an ‘Eastern party,’ opposed since 1081, in Greece, to a ‘Western party,’ and of ‘Hellenoturkism,’ an ideology of the Eastern party, since the fifteenth century, which expressed its preference for the Turkish element against the absolute enemy represented by the Frankish element, that is, the West. Nonetheless, a common characteristic unites the intellectuals of both parties today: Hellenocentrism. Easternizers and Westernizers concur on this one point: that Greece has always constituted the center of world civilization and as a universal mother has given birth to many children.”
—“Greece and the West”
