This article focuses on enlightenment endeavors of the Cappadocian Orthodox most of whom had Turkish as their mother tongue. The community at hand is also recorded either as Karamanlides or as Anatolian Christians in some academic literature. Anatolian Christians faced the phenomenon of migration towards big port cities in the nineteenth century and afterwards they initiated a movement of enlightenment of those who remained in homelands through education. This article analyzes this process through the issues of Anatoli newspaper which were published between 1891 and 1899. Anatoli was published in Turkish with Greek letters, remained in circulation between 1851 and 1912; and supported the enlightenment of Anatolian Orthodox as well as protection of their moral values.
