Santorini History: Information about the History of Santorini Greece

Is not only a history of people but also a privileged history that develops and shapes by itself. In order to understand the above, you have to think that Santorini did not exist in Cyclades. It was born after the eruption of a volcano. The history of Santorini is the history of a place, which is not granted and must be started over every now and then. The first inhabitants of Santorini were Pro-Hellenes who appeared in 3000 BC.

The myth of Deucalion and Pyra, who were saved from the deluge, which was caused by Zeus to punish the mortals, is closely connected with the eruption in Santorini. This myth is chronologically placed in 1530 and 1400 BC. Another myth about a flood is the angry reaction of Poseidon, who flooded Attica when Athena beat him in their rivalry about the domination of Athens. The death of Hippolytus was caused by a huge wave, raised by Poseidon near Troizina.
Ancient times:
After the eruption of the volcano, people returned to their normal activities. We know very little about the first inhabitants of the island. All we know is that they were Phoenicians who, around 1300 BC, were attracted by the beauty of the island. Then the Doric tribes arrived with King Thyra and they named the island Thyra.

Byzantine period: Santorini became the seat of episcopacy with Dioscouros as the bishop around 3rd century. Since the time of Justinian Santorini was in the metropolis of Rhodes. The Byzantine monument of Santorini is the chapel of Panagia of Episcopi, built by the emperor Alexios I Komninos.

Venetian domination and recent years: The Venetians arrived in Thyra (Santorini) in 1204. It was a time when the conflict between the dukes of Naxos and the dukes of Santorini begun as well as the efforts of the inhabitants to free the island. The only peaceful time for the island was the time when the duke of Naxos gave it to his daughter for dowry.

However, this did not last long because the uncle of the bride disagreed and he took it back when he was in power. When Santorini was part of the Ottoman Empire everything was peaceful. The inhabitants occupied themselves with trade and made their own naval fleet. In 1821 the naval fleet of the island took the third place in Greece.
