With the onset of modern nationalism in the 19th century, there’s been a conflict in the idea of the Greek identity within Greece over whether Greece should identify as a Western nation and emphasize its Classical heritage or whether it should identify as an Eastern nation and emphasize its Orthodox/Byzantine heritage, and whether these two things are or are not in conflict.
This was a really fun series of polls. Thanks for posting them.
