The color-illustrated catalogue includes 9 informative essays that explore the historic and socio-economic context of the period, the spiritual and artistic legacy of the Orthodox Church, the importance of home and decorative arts, the adornment of women, the depictions of Greece by foreign travelers, and the Greek Enlightenment and founding of the modern Greek State.
