Chadzi Dimitri (unknown) Agelasto[1]


Personal Information    |    Sources    |    All    |    PDF

  • Name Dimitri (unknown) Agelasto 
    Title Chadzi  
    Gender Male 
    • Mentioned in the Moundon Codex in 1702 (Chios). The Agelasto family had its origins in Byzantine Constantinople.
    • On this man Argenti builds the Agelasto tree. A number of Agelastos have been identified as preceeding Dimitri, but their lineages were unclear to Argenti. They can be found through a name search using the term 'unknown' in the search criteria.
    • Argenti gives him the title "Chadzi". Chatzi derives from the arab word hajj, which means the pilgrimage to Mecca. The Christians´pilgrimage was not to Mecca, of course, but to the Holy Places in Palestine. For an orthodox Greek it was, in former times, a great honor to be able to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Places and, to make things perfect, to be baptized in the Jordan River, like Jesus. This made him then a Chatzi and he was so proud of it that he added this term to his name. Some put it in front of their Christian name ("Chatzi Dimitri Agelasto"), others combined it with their surname. Even in our days there are countless Greeks with surnames of the sort "Chatzikonstantinou", "Chatziapostolou" etc. (George Agelasto)
    • He is atop of Argenti's Agelasto tree. Angela (Augustis) Agelasto, however, born about 1625 is the first female on Argenti's Negroponte tree and thus Argenti's first Agelasto. It is uncertain how these two people relate, but Angela would be the generation (possible sister of) of Dimitri's great-great-grandfather, more or less.
