The active tectonics of the area of Greece and its seismic activity have always been present in the country?s history.
Many researchers, tempted to work on Greek historical earthquakes, have realized that this is a task not easily fulfilled. The existing catalogues of strong historical earthquakes are useful tools to perform general SHA studies. However, a variety of supporting datasets, non-uniformly distributed in space and time, need to be further investigated. In the present paper, a review of historical earthquake studies in Greece is attempted. The seismic
history of the country is divided into four main periods. In each one of them, characteristic examples, studies and approaches are presented.
