heal.abstract
Vasileios Vatatzis was a Greek merchant who lived in the first half of 18th century. Through his travels his life became intertwined with Russian and Persian politics when he undertook a diplomatic mission. Eventually, Vatatzis secured an important position in Nader Shah’s court. His political understanding combined with his cosmopolitan life offered him a unique view on Central Asian matters. In Voyages Vatatzis describes peoples of Central Asia while making ethnographic remarks. Here Voyages is used as as a primary historical source to extract information about nomadic peoples, which are then contextualized in the broad spectrum of Eurasian history. This dissertation was written as part of the MSc in Black Sea & Eastern Mediterranean at the International Hellenic University. Voyages is compared in this dissertation with secondary sources and traces where Voyages confirms, elaborates, or contradicts the existing historiography. The subsequent aim of this dissertation is to facilitate the understanding of Voyages content today. The work is unfortunately not yet available in English. Here, the passages with the most significant historical importance have been selected and translated from Greek to English. Furthermore, this dissertation contextualizes Voyages and explains the historical realities that are mention in the book. This work is accompanied by a line-to-line translation, for an in-depth look where needed, maps that follow Vatatzis' travels, and an Index of 50 names of modern cities with their counterpart in Modern Greek.
