Of course the issue is not just to get Frangoi to rethink their Gibbonesque views (or non-views more likely) on the Byzantines, it’s also to get Neo-Greeks themselves to understand them, which might help them, finally, “in a globalised world in which units are reconfiguring around” them, reconstitute the identity project they have been failing tragically at for almost three centuries.

Very cool…

(But, oh, wait, “…kept aloft the lights of antiquity against all the odds…”?  I thought Arabs did that…  Where’s Mehdi Hassan when you need him?)
