Hellenism and the Unfinished Revolution is a series of twenty addresses delivered by Apostolos Makrakis in Concord Square in Athens Greece in the year 1866. These speeches highlight the early development of his (Eastern Orthodox) Historicist view of the biblical prophecies, and this historical method of interpreting prophecy was expanded further in his full commentary on the Book of Revelation in 1882, The work shows Makrakis was a major proponent of the "Megali Idea" and the restoration of the Byzantine Empire for the young Greek nation. The ideas expressed herein in this work are just as relevant today as they were in the nineteenth century, fully consistent with the prophecies found in Byzantine Apocalyptic Tradition, which foretell a coming blessed era for the Orthodox faith. Makrakis provides a possible framework to reawaken the spiritual slumber of the Greek nation through the message of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to finally achieve the completion of the Greek Revolution which began 200 years ago.

"The Revolution of 1821 indeed remains unfinished. It is a beginning not an end. It is a call to the re-awakening of the universality and catholicity of Orthodoxy. It summons all Orthodox to vigilance against all outward and inner forces that threaten the integrity and purity of the Orthodox Faith. The Revolution of 1821 is essentially a spiritual revolution. It aims at the recovery of an Orthodox Civilization and its perfection. It looks to continuing where Byzantium left off." - Fr. Eusebius Stephanou

"I could foresee the impending fall and disintegration of the Turkish Ottoman Empire since 1866. This accounts for my decision to come to Athens. I came to awaken those who were asleep and to proclaim how our country, by preparing and consolidating itself, could best and most quickly bring to completion the unfinished and imperfect accomplishment of the Greek Revolution of 1821. Twenty addresses on this subject were delivered in Concord Square of Athens, Greece. These addresses attracted the attention of large crowds of citizens who listened and applauded with delight and enthusiasm." - Apostolos Makrakis
