Digital Encyclopaedia of the Hellenic World. Foundation of the Hellenic World
The Encyclopaedia of the Hellenic World (EHW) is an original electronic project aiming at collecting, recording, documenting, presenting and promoting the historical data that testify to the presence of Hellenic culture throughout time and space. EHW includes entries that concern geographical-cultural areas lying beyond the borders of the Hellenic nation-state.
The EHW aims to offer a complete view of the development, spatial dissemination of the Hellenic cultural phenomenon through time. The issues under examination are not dealt with individually, detached from the framework within which they were created, but in relation to the geographical region in question as well as the non Hellenic cultural traditions. EHW’s ultimate goal is to contribute to the understanding of how Hellenic culture was shaped and disseminated, taking under consideration its contacts and osmoses with other cultural realities and traditions.
