David, regarding this "central tension" in modern Greece, I am reminded that during the Greek War for Independence the Western Europeans (Lord Byron et al.), who idolized classical pagan Greek culture found themselves running up against the Byzantine Greek idea of themselves.


Which was none too favorable, I suppose? That would be a "yes."

One is reminded of the comment "Athena, patron saint of Greece........."



Comment which, for everyone who does not know, came from our own Bob Costas, during the Opening Ceremonies of the 2004 Games in Athens.
