The Greek Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies is an academic association which was established in 1962 at the initiative of C. Th. Dimaras. The Society aims to promote the research on the Neohellenic Enlightenment, an offspring of the European Enlightenment, publish the relevant research and organize academic conferences and international meetings on the subject.

Only a few months after its establishment, the Society launched the publication of the academic journal The Gleaner, which focuses in the reception of the European 18th century ideas in the Greek space and generally in South-East Europe, where the Greek language acted as an assimilative, binding element and became the language of culture. Further, it focuses in comparative studies of literary issues dating especially from the 18th and 19th centuries. In 1963 the Society also launched the series “Neohellenic Texts”, in which important documentary sources for the Neohellenic Enlightenment have been published.

The Society constitutes the Greek “national association” which participated in the establishment of the International Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, an international forum to whose administration the Secretary General of the Greek Society plays an active part.
