The example of Syrrako

“There was a time when farmers didn’t have any homes and they’d sleep in the cellars of the ραφτάδικα (raftadika) families, i.e. families made up of tailors. Later they were able to build their own but of course these were summer homes without any special luxuries and of course these weren’t located in the village’s central area. They were located in the outskirts. During this same period, and according to customary law, the shepherds never attempted to walk down to on the central market place and so they’d never be seen. They’d become known as the “invisibles.” They’d have their wedding ceremonies in the Church of the Holy Mary because St Nicholas Church was reserved only for tailors. As for power, this discussion was closed. It was a monopoly.” [1].
