On January 22, 2022 we celebrate 234 years from the birth of Lord Byron. Τhe Society for Hellenism and Philhellenism (SHP) implemented a digital exhibition project of the Philhellenism Museum’s collection, which includes personal objects and art related to the emblematic Philhellene, romantic poet and fighter for the freedom of Greece and the values of Western culture.
The exhibition presents 123 personal objects, rare specimens of Byronic art, portraits of the main protagonists of a close circle of people, presenting alone or through 4 different stories, the emblematic Lord Byron, the admiration that he inspired internationally during his time, and his contribution to the liberation of Greece.
The digitized collection is available at the following link:
In addition, this project justifies the institution of the Lord Byron International Prize, launched by the Society for Hellenism and Philhellenism (SHP).
