"Women and Property in Early Modern Greece" This lecture discussed the ways in which women received property in the period from 1750-1850 (dowries, inheritance, etc.) - the extent to which we can talk about women being in control of their wealth, which changed significantly over their lifetimes - and the different types of property that women received (houses, land, movable goods, etc.). It stressed the local nature of such practices, and the remarkable diversity that can be seen during this time-period from region to region in Greece and the homogenizing role of the modern Greek state.
