Kostartsa 2002

Dihori - Kostaritsa 2000


(District of Phokis - Greece)

    Dichori (Costartsa its old name), an Aetolian settlement, according to archaeological findings in the area of the Hellenistic period, is situated on a high slope (1200m) of the gigantic mountain Bardousia, the ancient Corax of Strabo. Its site is much privileged for it enjoys a great variety of colours, the Alpic vegetation, woods of  trees chestnut trees and cold crystal clear waters. The village prides in its mountain crest <<the mountain of Costartsa, 2375m, where we find the historic cave, called << the Apokleistra >> in which the villagers took refuge every time the Turks attacked the village, during the Independence War 1821-28.
    Beside the natural beauty, the mountain crests, the rivers, and creeks, the flat areas full of ferns, the hillsides with origan, the wild flowers and all kinds of bushes, the chorus of flocks and the wild boars, the visitor enjoys also the human activities and creations: old churches, country chapels, objects of folk art, wooden cared iconostasis, church candelabra, icons, communion cups and old houses.
    In brief, Dichori is a beautiful mountainous village rich in history, folk art, myths and traditions.
    Mrs Maria Loukopoulou Pattichi has written the history of Dichori in her book << Epistrophi>> (Return). She also published another book on the whole area, the mountainous Doris, entitled << Bardousia, to the villages of Northwest Doris, which has been awarded a prize by the Academy of Athens.
    The guests' house now under construction will be very soon at the disposal of the friends and lovers of the beautiful corner of the Doric land.

Kostartsa's Mountain and Soufles


Ένα σύγχρονο Ελληνικό πρόβλημα

Στην πρόσφατη Γενική Συνέλευση της 4-2-2001
έγινε πρόταση από την κ. Αδαμόπουλου Ευαγγελία να τεθεί το θέμα της Ελληνικής Γλώσσας και της διατήρησης της Πολιτισμικής μας ταυτότητας ως κύριο θέμα του Συνεδρίου
που θα συνέλθει τον ερχόμενο Αύγουστο στην Κωστάρτσα.
Το θέμα δυστυχώς ξεχάστηκε αμέσως μετά τα χειροκροτήματα.
Είναι αυτό που λέγεται σ' αυτές τις περιπτώσεις
" αγνοήθηκε μετά πολλών επαίνων".

"40 Ακαδημαϊκοί κρούουν τον κώδωνα του κίνδυνου
για τον αφελληνισμό μας, στα πλαίσια της
επερχόμενης θύελλας της παγκοσμιοποίησης"

Σχετικό με το θέμα αυτό είναι το παρακάτω κείμενο του Dr.
Παναγιώτη Παττίχη που ανακοινώθηκε πρόσφατα στο
Πανεπιστήμιο της Οξφόρδης.


Ένα διαχρονικό Ευρωπαϊκό πρόβλημα

Ένα μεστό Αγγλικό κείμενο γραμμένο
αποκλειστικά με Ελληνικές λέξεις

Για την ανάγνωση του κειμένου δεν απαιτούνται
ιδιαίτερες γνώσεις της Αγγλικής γλώσσας.

Europeans and the therapy of synchronous problems


The political archons of European Union, in harmony with their historical
scope, must energize Europeans to be not adiaphorist but energetic, not on the periphery but in the center of political problems, a basic Periclean political philosophy.
Europeans must be achromatic and myopic to the ephemeral
eudemonism of technological paradise; for the ecdysis of our psyche from
the diachronical Hellenic ideas of meter, arete and autarkeia will be catastrophic.
Systematic and methodical ergatocracy is the alexipharmic and the therapy for
all chronic and caustic political, ethnical and ethnological
symptoms at this phase of European history.
My syllogism is that Europe must methodize, synchronize and harmonize
her energies with the anthropocentric Hellenic ideas, as an antidote, an antipode
to the phenomenon of hylozoism and the typhoon of technology.
She must be the protagonist for a new cosmorama, the omphalos
and the epicenter of new paragogic theories, of a new ethical and aesthetic
paedeia, which will metamorphose European character.
Hellas must ostracize her lethargy and apathy
and with her estrus and enthusiasm, with the oxygen and the aroma
of her ideas and her lexical thesaurus
enthrone in her psyche the heroism to deaconate the idea of a new
Europe with eurhythmic organization, without xenophobia and xenelasia
but with xenial sympathy and philanthropy, with democracy polyphony
and isonomy as her political stereotypes.
