Overview:Rhodes in Modern Times: First Published in 1887, a revised edition with additional material, including a prologue by Elias Kollias - Cecil Torr's 19th-century studies of Rhodes, in the Greek Dodecanese, off the coast of Asia Minor, were the first and most authoritative English guides to the island's multi-layered history: nothing approaching them had been attempted before. Impeccably qualified - Harrow (Arthur Evans was a class-mate), Trinity Cambridge, and Inner Temple barrister of formidable reputation - Cecil Torr had the true antiquarian's obsession for factual presentation and detailed analyses of primary sources. The result is a rock-solid account of the story of Byzantine Rhodes and the times of the Knights of St John, including the extraordinary events of the Great Siege which culminated in the Knights' expulsion from the island in 1522. First published in 1887, Rhodes in Modern Times is an historical guide to the Byzantine and medieval landscapes of Rhodes. Strolling with Torr up the 'Street of the Knights', or on the great walls of the Old Town, or around its now peaceful moat, takes you as close as you'll safely dare to the events of this front line in East/West relations of 500 years ago: a guided tour in and out of three 'time zones' - Rhodes in her medieval splendour, at the turn of the 19th century, and today. This edition of Torr's classic (recommended by Lawrence Durrell, no less, referring to "... the scholarly Englishman who has given us the best historical monograph on the island... Read him and you will see why..." - "Reflections on a Marine Venus") includes an extended prologue (in Greek with English translation) by Dr Elias Kollias, a leading authority on medieval and Byzantine Rhodes. Additional sections include a biography of Cecil Torr, detailed chronologies of Rhodes' history, and a 'tour' with Torr in and around the famous Old Town.
