 “…as time goes by” truly remarkable works of literature “shine bright on us, with a light as new and fresh as ever… they have the power to complete us and ask of us to complete them…”

Erotokritos, 1st edition, 1713

The Gennadius Library of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, in possession of the very rare first edition of Erotokritos, which was printed in 1713 in Venice, by Antonio Bortoli, honoured the founding of Stegi Vitsentzos Kornaros by granting it the right to upload and use the digital archive of the edition.
