The Cretan school of thought about the Cretan lyre.
There's one more school of thought about the Cretan lyra, the thought of the Cretans, which have been ignored totally.
The Cretan lyra has been spontaneous developed in the island of Crete some time before the year 961 AD and after the Byzantine invasion of Nikiforos Focas it's been adopted by the Byzantine panspermia among other treasures from Crete, to Instanbul, and from there, spred east and west.
I will add this thought to the article, because i belive we have the right to have our opinion in an article about our instrument, if you don't mind. Idaeananvil (talk) 16:15, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
Very important article . This is the most alive form of the byzantine lyra, ancestor of most European bowed instruments, including the lira da braccio and the violin. A good importance rating will bring more researchers and help expand the article. I have spent hundreds of hours on all the lyra family: Lyra (Cretan), Gadulka, Lira Calabrese and Byzantine lyra. The last two articles were actually creted by myself, along with the Antonis Papadakis (kareklas). I would welcome more people to help me improve the articles.
