In 392 BCE, as the Corinthian War entered its third year, Corinth’s commitment to the anti-Spartan coalition was wavering. Calls for peace and re-entering an alliance with Sparta were growing. The governing elite within Corinth simply could not tolerate this. To remedy this political dissent, they would embark on one of the most cut-throat and blood-thirsty political acts of the Ancient World.

Yea it lasted until 387 BCE. The 'King's peace' ended the war and was brokered by the Persians. I will be writing an article about it later this year :)

Very very nice! Did you study a specific type of history? In my time I studied history in undergrad, with a focus on colonial history which was very interesting. I am only getting into Ancient Greek history now, most of my knowledge is from what I learned in high school so I have to really brush up on my knowledge which is a big reason that I'm on the forum.

I mainly focussed on European politics in the 19th century, but I also did a bit on the Wars of the Roses, Ancient Greece during the Peloponnesian wars, then the rise and fall of the Roman Empire. I have only recently started getting back into the history of Ancient Greece.
That sounds great, which empires/regions did you study in particular? Yea it is a good forum, have you tried any of the facebook groups which focus on ancient greece, they post some good articles?

Sounds super interesting! The rise and fall of the Roman Empire especially. My focus was particularly on the Americas, and mostly on the Spanish and British empire, so looking at their initial conquest of the Americas and how it impacted many of the present day political situations in each region. Very telling stuff!

It's a fascinating period in history. Arguably the most turbulent period in English Medieval History (It's what game of thrones is based off) :D

Yea I love Roman history, going to Rome twice this year I love it that much :) That sounds brilliant, I have not really studied American history (Bar watching some documentaries). I have always found Cortes really interesting, I need to look into it more. Which county was most interesting to study?
 

The Athens Polytechnic uprising is a critical moment in Greeces history

This uprising was led by students who opposed the military occupation of Greece in the 1970s. The students took over the Athens Polytechnic University building in protest of the occupation, and were faced with a very strong and violent response from the Greek military. Today, protesters from across the country will rebel against the government in memory of the uprising and to make their voices heard about present day issues. For anyone who is recommended in Greek history, I recommend that you read more about this uprising and its impact on Greece's politics.

The history of the Greek Orthodox Church

The history of the Greek Orthodox Church is so great and vast, it is even said that it was established while Jesus and his Apostles were alive. It was in 1054 when the Orthodox church split from the Catholic Church, this was when the Greek Orthodox Church became what we now know it as today. Though it is often contested by many, Greek Orthodox Christians believe that the Orthodox Church was the church established by Jesus Christ himself.

Can you pass this Greek geography quiz?

I'm so curious to see how much everyone knows about Greek geography. Personally, I know very little so it's super interesting to see how actual Greeks did with these questions.

The uninhabited island of Delos hosts its first concert in thousands of years!

The island of Delos has been uninhabited since the ancient times. In Greek mythology, it is considered to be the birthplace of Apollo. The island is full of ancient Greek history, and it now stands as an archeological site that people can visit near the island of Mykonos. In just about a week, there will be a concert which will bring musicians from around the world to hold a special concert on the island. I have my fingers crossed that we'll see more and more of these performances over time, and the tourists will be able to visit the site and see some more parts of modern Greek culture like this concert.

Well,at last hope commences!
