Part II 1859-1888/9 GREEK OLYMPIC (OLYMPIAN) GAMES A few words about the 1859-1889 Olympic (Olympian) Games: In 1830, along with the re-instatement of Greece as free country, Greeks seemed to recollect their ancient history, especially from Classical years, and wanting to honor the ancient Greek phrase “Νους υγιής εν σώματι υγιεί” translated as “Healthy mind exists, in a healthy body”, started forming the groundwork to revive the ancient Olympic Games. Some initiatives as follows: - 1833, Poem of Panagiotis Soutsos, (intellectual, poet of the time) “Dialogue of the Dead”, where he clearly proposes the revival of the ancient Olympic Games. - 1834, Panagiotis Soutsos sends a formal proposal to Ioannis Kolettis, minister of internal affairs of Greece, asking the same. - 1835, after P.Soutsos’ proposal, I. Kolettis, by his “Memorandum of the instituting of National celebrations and public games on the model of Antiquity, submits a formal proposal to King Othon. - 1837, Royal Decree signed by Queen Amalia, formally gives shape to what the Games would look like. - 1838, the municipality of Letrina (today’s municipality of Pyrgos, near Olympia) proposed to hold Olympic Games on March 25th honoring Greece’s national celebrations. It is said, that Evangelis Zappas was inspired by the work of P.Soutsos, and decided to revive the ancient Olympic Games himself, proposing it to king Othon, and funding them completely himself. This lead to acceptance, and ultimately, the revival of the ancient Olympic Games which were held in Athens from 1859-1889 became a reality. The Olympian Games consisted of two parts, an exhibition held in Zappeion Megaron (Mansion), as well as the athletic Games held in Ludwig sq. (now Omonia sq.) in1859, and in the Games after that, in the Panathenaic stadium where the Olympic Hymn (composed by Orfanidis) and athlete’s oath would be heard. The Olympian Games were accepted with great excitement by national and international press, as well as societies who promoted the benefits of physical education (e.g. Wenlock, a committee of gentlemen in England, initiated in 1850 who held their own local athletic games, the Wenlock Olympian Games) and praised and supported the initiative for revival of Olympian Games, and the start of modern Olympic Games as they mentioned them (The London Review, Sept. 15, 1860).
