Two hundred years ago, at a time when Edinburgh was popularly called ‘The Athens of the North’, Greece rose in revolution against the Ottoman Empire. These two contexts, at first glance quite distinct, were connected by visions of an idealized classical past and by international networks of support for Greek independence. The exhibition Edina/Athena, generously funded by the A. G. Leventis Foundation, sets these stories side-by-side for the first time
