Chadzi Zannis (Dimitri) Agelasto[1, 2]


Personal Information    |    Sources    |    All    |    PDF

  • Name Zannis (Dimitri) Agelasto 
    Title Chadzi  
    Gender Male 
    • Mentioned in the Saint Anargiron Codex in 1739, cited by Zolotas. This may be the basis for Argenti's placement.
    • 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)
