The Kallerghis in Greek Romantic theater
The adventures of Alexios and Leon Kallerghis, scions of the influent Kallerghis family in Crete during the Venetian period, inspired the Greek playwrights of the 19th century Romantic movement. Both Spyridon Vasileiades and Timoleon Ampelas wrote theatrical plays revolving around the Kallerghis. The author compares their works, especially highlighting their differences that are rather important, despite the fact that they both treat the same subject and write in a period where Crete was at the front stage of Greek politics, because of its struggle for independence from Ottoman rule.
