The books you will find on this site are mainly, but not exclusively, concerned with the forms and expressions of Greek life and culture that emerged during the post-Byzantine period while still remaining deeply rooted in the spiritual inheritance of Greek Christendom. This life and culture is often identified by the enigmatic word Romiosyni, which derives from the connection of the Greeks with 'new Rome' — Constantinople — and the Eastern Roman Empire. People who dwelt within this Empire called themselves Romioi — Romans — hence Romiosyni, which in a non-nationalistic sense could be rendered as Hellenism. It is for this reason that many of books on this site have been published within the encompass of what is called 'The Romiosyni Series'. Romiosyni is a word that has both historical and emotional connotations and expresses for modern Greeks a particular aspect of their national identity. Historically, this identity was not limited to a political, racial or territorial boundary, and this sense of nationality depended more on the sharing of a certain milieu, almost a state of mind, than on anything else.

All the books on this site have been produced in Greece and particular care has been taken with regard to their design, quality and durability.
