“A History of the Pindus Mountains during the Ottoman Centuries”

Molly Greene.

Byzantine Studies Fellow, Fall

A history of the Pindus Mountains during the Ottoman period has not yet been written. In addition to this overall goal, Greene aims to interrogate the well-known trope of localism and isolation, for mountains generally and the Pindus in particular. The proliferation of mountain monasteries and of bridges in this period—one author has referred to “the fury of bridge building between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries”—will be key sites of this interrogation.

Molly Greene is an historian of the Ottoman Empire, with a particular emphasis on the history of the Greek people during the Ottoman centuries.
