The Decline of Medieval Hellenism in Asia Minor

Exceptionally (or maybe not?), I’m including an academic book.

For Dimitra Triantafyllidou:

Speros Vryonis: The Decline of Medieval Hellinism in Asia Minor

(Unless she reads it first)

Our first argument on Quora, and it seems, an ongoing one, on whether the Greek population in Asia Minor was discontinuous between the arrival of the Turks (13th century) and internal migrations in the Ottoman Empire (16th century).

Vryonis’ work is the work that historians cite to prove that Greeks had been thoroughly assimilated in Western Turkey. About time I satisfied myself on how strong the proof is.
