Kurulus Osman Episode 108 Summary
In Kurulus Osman Episode 108 in Urdu subtitles, As mentioned earlier, the Greeks, whose churches had lost their importance in the national sense and had lost both their commercial and cultural importance significantly, were no longer dreaming of reviving the Byzantine Empire, which ended in 1453, in the future.
Also, their sympathies for the “liberating” Russia were still undeveloped. The Greeks living in the Moldavian and Wallachian principalities, such as the Kantakouzens and Rosetti’s, did not show much respect to the Russian Tsar as a “hard Orthodox” who claimed to be fighting for his coreligionists, advancing with a sword in his hand, and foreseeing the conquest of Istanbul as the last goal of Russia’s policy in the East.

In Kurulus Osman Episode 108 in Urdu subtitles, Helladic did not see the Russian Tsar as the founder of the Orthodox Empire in the Orthodox Church’s defense, which was dedicated to the tsar. Georg Kastriota and Chrysanthemum Notaras, named after Skanderbeg, had come to offer peace to Tsar Peter I as emissaries of the infidel sultan, not to demand the survival of the Byzantine Empire.
Tsar Peter I, who also applied to the Greeks in 1711, but did not get any results, had salaried staff among the members of the Dutch consulate in Istanbul to get information about the situation of the Ottoman Empire. Neither in the Romanian capitals nor in Fener, after the flight of Thomas Kantakuzen and Kantemir to Russia, he found no adherents of the Orthodox faith or the hopes of the Greeks for centuries.
In Kurulus Osman Episode 108 in Urdu subtitles, The Greek population of the Ottoman Empire, who now mostly spoke Turkish, had no ideals that could conflict with the continuation of the Ottoman Empire. The understanding that prevailed in the states in the 16th and 17th centuries had completely disappeared. Venice could not even retain the Liberakis, which it paid for.
When Martyr Ali Pasha attacked the Morea to regain it, he could not have found a better ally than the Greek people, who suffered under the efforts of Catholic propagandists and the financial pressure of tax collectors. Chios, too, remembered the short-lived Venetian domination in the worst way.
The rule of the Turks had always been more merciful and proved to be more appropriate. Among the Orthodox clergy, who hated the Jesuits and Franciscans as the inevitable consequences of the conquests, these greatest enemies continued to live on, especially as long as they remained natural leaders of the people within the framework of Turkish institutions.
Propaganda did not continue with the intensity shown decades ago, but Rome’s ruling circles and their agents in the East had established churches, monasteries, and schools, whose very existence posed a constant threat and challenge to the Greek clergy.
In Kurulus Osman Episode 108 in Urdu subtitles, There was more than one Catholic Church in Izmir, and women filled the services of the Jesuit Priests. Under the auspices of French and Austrian ambassadors in Istanbul, Kapusen, Minorite and Jesuit priests were operating to spread the Catholic faith.
In Chios, despite the revenge of the Orthodox, many Frankish monks remained in important positions. As long as the former rivals, supported by representatives of the Western powers, wanted to continue to play an important role on Ottoman soil, the Turks could be assured of adherence to the Eastern Church, which was under Greek Orthodox influence and generally ruled by the Greeks, despite all taxes, extortions, and dwindling coercion.

In Kurulus Osman Episode 108 in Urdu subtitles, The Greeks were trying to attract the church hierarchy to their service through the metropolitan Nikeferos in Moldavia and Neophytos and Filaretos in Wallachia, but they found fearless opponents, especially in the clergy in Moldavia, who did not bow to the Phanetian prince. Catholic propaganda had created unrest among the Armenians.
Thanks to extensive trade relations and travels as far as Italy and France, Armenian traders became acquainted with the Western way of thinking and traditions. Since the support of the French ambassadors and consuls would be beneficial in their disputes with the Greeks and Ottoman finances, they accepted the unification offered by Rome, promising not to touch Armenian traditions.
Feriol hoped that he could win all the Armenians for this conversion. Indeed, he managed to impress Patriarch Avedik in this way. However, since the patriarch still did not want to give up his belief, the French ambassador decided to implement a measure that would cause him to confront not only Armenians but also Turkish elders in 1706.
The patriarch was forcibly taken to France from his exile in Chios on a merchant ship. The Sublime Porte, who could not do anything against Feriol himself, responded to this action by imposing heavy sanctions against the Armenians who converted to the Catholic religion and whom they treated as rebels.
In Kurulus Osman Episode 108 in Urdu subtitles, The Catholic patriarch and seven of his followers only narrowly escaped the death warrant issued against them, and a few months later, a ban on conversion of this peace-loving, hardworking and useful subjects was enacted. The Armenian printing house, which was opened a short time ago in the old Vizierhan, was closed.
