As part of this year’s celebrations marking the two hundredth anniversary of the Greek Revolution in 1821, the Mount Athos Center has prepared a programme of events and activities designed to present a unique aspect of Athonite history which is unknown to the general public: that of the part played by Mount Athos in the Greek Revolution. The programme includes the production of a number of relevant publications and the organisation of an international conference and exhibitions.      
The programme commenced with the group exhibition entitled ‘Neomartyrs: the Road to Freedom’, which was presented in the exhibition space of the Mount Athos Center from 22 June to 25 September 2021.  

This year, 2020, the Mount Athos Centre is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its foundation. To mark the event, it is organising an extensive programme of celebratory events.
