The Enlighteners
of the Nation


In association with the Holy and Great Monastery of Vatopaidi, Honeybee Audiovisual is producing a lengthy ninety-minute (90-minute) creative historical-religious documentary entitled ‘The Enlighteners of the Greek Nation, 1453 to 1830’. The documentary explores the role of the Church in the awakening of the Greek nation during Ottoman rule, until the revolution of 1821.

The interconnectedness of faith with human societies has been prevalent through the ages and it is well known that ‘the revolution of 1821 succeeded thanks to the passion and faith of a handful of people, though everything pointed to the opposite outcome. Join us and uncover the events that lead to the victory of the Greek nation, from a purely spiritual standpoint.
