(Poliani Messinias 1786 - Maniaki Messinias 1825)
Papaflessas, whose real name was Grigorios Dikaios-Flessas, lead a monastic life in several monasteries of the Pelopponese until the Turkish conflict made him seek passage to Zakynthos and from there to Constantinople. In 1819, he became Archbishop and soon after was initiated to the Filiki Eteria. As an Archbishop he travelled to Moldovlachia spreading the hope for liberation to the populations
In 1820 he arrived at Peloponnese as a herald of Dimitrios Ypsilantis and began preparations for the revolution. On the January 26th-29th, 1821, he summoned the provosts and chieftains at Vostitsa and later departed for Mani, where he worked with Kolokotronis, Nikitaras, Perraivos, Anagnostaras, and others.
He excelled at arousing the masses, raise excitement and igniting the flame for rebellion inside them. During Ibrahim’s invasion, he took 1500 men and ambushed him at Maniaki but, despite his efforts, as the enemies outnumbered them, Papaflessas was in the fight.
