Adamantios Korais (Smyrna, April 27th 1748 – Paris, April 6t 1833), a physician and intellectual, is one of the greatest figures of modern Hellenism. As a spiritual leader of the Greek Revolution, equivalent to Rigas Feraios and Dionysios Solomos, he is the great teacher of the nation, introducer and the principal expresser of the Enlightenment in the Greek world (Source: https://www.sansimera.gr/biographies/2615).
