We are pleased to present to you the new edition of “History of Cyprus, Volume II”, conducted by the Ecumenical Hellenic Foundation.

It is a work of seven university professors, under the scientific supervision of Professor Dr. Savvas Neocleous which aspires to enlighten the readers in relation to the history and the present times of Megalonisos (meaning Big Island and referring to Cyprus), but also to educate on the Cypriot Hellenism. Along with Volume I (which was published in 2018), this two-volume work covers a substantial gap that exists due to the occasional, external, supposedly objective, scientific interference and intervention, especially existing because of agendas, and it attempts to present the historical truth.

It is prefaced by the President of the Republic of Cyprus Mr. Nikos Anastasiades and -same as in volume I- by His Eminence the Archbishop of Kykkos and Tillyria, Nikephoros.
