I find this subject interesting:
Did the Orthodox church really have secret schools teaching the Greek language while under Ottoman occupation? Yes or no?
If yes...can you prove that Ottoman rule always included assimilation into the dominant language via wiping out the minority language? (I find this assertion curious as it goes against everything I was taught in college about the Ottomans)
How do you explain the fact that other Ottoman controlled regions don't speak Turkish either?
Did they also have "secret schools"?
If no...What purpose does this myth serve?
