Event Details

Η ελληνική γλώσσα γράφεται τουλάχιστον από το 1500 π.Χ καθώς έχει αποδειχθεί ότι η Γραμμική Β των μυκηναϊκών ανακτόρων είναι ελληνική. Επί 1000 περίπου χρόνια, η ελληνική έγινε η γλώσσα επικοινωνίας και παιδείας των λαών της Ανατολικής Μεσογείου και, εξ αυτού και η γλώσσα διάδοσης της Χριστιανικής Θρησκείας. Μαζί με την γλώσσα, το κυριότερο στοιχείο διαμόρφωσης του Ελληνισμού είναι η ναυτοσύνη με το εμπόριο τόσο στην θάλασσα όσο και στην στεριά να παίζει μεγάλο ρόλο.


The Greek language has been written since at least 1500 BC as it has been proven that Linear B scripts found in Mycenaean palaces are Greek. For about 1000 years, Greek became the language of communication and education of the peoples of the Eastern Mediterranean and, as a result, the language used in the spreading of Christianity. Along with language, the other main transforming element of Hellenism is seamanship, with trade both at sea and on land playing a significant role.
