In this insightful hagiographical study, Professor Markou vindicates the reputation of Saint Gregory V, the Patriarch of Constantinople Martyred by the Turks in 1821 in reaction to the Greek War of Independence. He refutes the slanders spread by unbelieving modern Greek intellectuals against this heroic Hierarch who epitomized “the most supreme sacrifice” and was “a source of ethnic, patriotic, and spiritual vision and inspiration.”
