The meaning of "Arvanites" in old sources.[edit]

It seems that the article has been locked at an "Albanian" POV. Since much weight is given to early sources, like foreign travellers, it should be added that in that time "Albanian" did not necessarily mean ethnic Albanian. See Arnauts.

"Arvanites were called in the two hegemonies (Moldavia, Vlachia, early 19th c.) the mixed Greeks, Bulgarians and Serbians, connected by the same dogma and living by mercenarism".

"In the eithy odd years during which Naples employed light infantry from the Balkans, the troops of the regiment and its successors were known popularly under the three names in addition to the aforementioned camociotti: the seemingly national names of Greci, Macedoni and Albanesi. These, names did not, however, have their later ethnic conotations but were instead stylized terms that described the soldiers' general origins or mode of fighting..."


I am suprissed to read such missinformation in relation to arvanites issue. the ones who have thrown such information to this site, eather have done it on purpose or they are wrongly informed. they may have forgoten that arvanites are all from albanian origin as much as are members of cham community. Recently, a study from an well-known histiryan has clamed that in nowdays Greece live about 6 milion arvanites and cham altogether, which means that comprisses the halph of population of Greece today.
