    It is widely accepted that Greek Fire was developed by one Greek Christian, Kallinikos (aka Callinicus) of Heliopolis. I know this history from many old sources. What I am worried about is a recent misleading redirection of merits of the greek fire. One recent post on an obscure blog, says: discovered by Kallinikos a jewish man. How can you try to mislead people in thinking that ? Kallinikos was a native greek and not a jew! We live in bad times in which realities of the past are badly distorted for theft of merits !

    I read somewhere that the inventor was an Egyptian, who took it straight to the Caliph at Baghdad. The Caliph wasn't interested, so our Egyptian - a pragmatic kind of guy it seems - then went to Constantinople, and the Byzantines snapped it up. Had the Caliph took up the idea, the whole of European history from the 7th century onward would have been very different.

    @Joseph Drach that's not correct Greek fire was invented way before the flamethrower showed up in song China it was introduce there by Arabic traders actually, as well flamethrowers already have a near-constant shooting flame, flamethrowers history actually goes back further than Byzantine Greek fire, first showed up in the Peloponnesian War at least

    You have not done your research.The flamethrower of the age was invented way before that and continued to be used.The Chinese invented a flamethrower that shot flaming spray at the enemy when you pulled or pushed a rod in it.This way it kept a near constant shooting flame going at your adversary.This was long before the Greeks or Romans did anything like that.

    Actually theirs significant doubt as to weather or not the siege of 674 - 678 every really happened. This podcast describes it perfectly Also in the siege if 717 to 718 the fleet wasn't decimated - what ever definition your using - as only about 1% of the Arab navy could have possible been destroyed (4:10) (only the rearguard of the Arab navy, numbering 20 ships, were destroyed out of the finial fleet in 18,000 [ After the terrible winter for the arabs about 700 relief ships were sent]) This is a podcast by the same person covering that I also don't think that the Byzantines would have lost either siege without greek fire. In the first siege (assuming it happened) the Arabs were basically isolated and didn't even try to take Constantinople, and in the second siege the major reasons for the Byzantine victory were Arab defections, bad weather, Bulgar assistance, Byzantine victory against a relief army, and Byzantine preparation. I think the real thing that saved the Byzantines wasn't Greek fire but the geography of the empire, the management of the empire, luck, and most of all the Abbasid revolt moving Arab attention farther away from Constantinople.

    In the first Islamic conquest, they attacked the Byzantine Empire hoping to penetrate Europe from the east, through the Balkans, but weren't able to overpower the Romans. They tried the same thing from the straits in the West with success, destroying the Visigothic Kingdom and taking over Hispania. They also attacked Gaul, but only made it as far as Tours when they were defeated in battle by the Franks. The battle of Tours in 732 was probably their second worst defeat in the 8th century and it marked the end of the first Islamic conquest, exactly 100 years after Muhammad's death. Also, Constantinople was the most important city in the world at the time.

    Money, land and influence, yes. I don't think there's been a single conflict in history that hasn't had at least one of those three things as objectives. You see, Constantinople was for the Ottomans what Rome had been for the Huns and Goths. An unlocked safe, with no guards on duty.

    Horrible form of death for those on the receiving end, but if the weapon had not been used Constantinople would have been lost and there would have been Islamic invasion into Europe. History would be different. Of course modern man has created worse weapons and far more destructive. My late Papou was born in Constantinople while it was still called Constantinople in 1895. I taught English there and have many Turkish friends. I have a published article about the Arab siege of Constantinople, but I'd have to wait till I can get on my laptop to post it. "Istanbul" by Dr. Thomas Madden is really good.

    You mean how we defeated the Franks pre and post Tours under the reign of Abdul Rahman III and Hisham of Córdoba? They just tuned around with war booty. Lmao, bro. Contemporary Muslims didn’t even know about Tours. It was a raid undertaken by a local magistrate in Al Andalusia. Not an encounter with flower of the Caliph’s armies sent by the Caliph himself like Constantinople. Also, it didn’t stop you from running like the Iberians in your attempts at the Crusades or saving Byzantium(the main powerhouse of Europe). "Today most historians see Tours as minor engagement" (The Allure of Battle: A History of How Wars have been won in the Past, Nolan Cathal, pp.30) "In time the Battle of Tours would acquire almost mythic qualities as Romantic era European writers credited Martel with saving Christendom from Islam. The reality, however, is less sensational. While Charles and the Franks did enjoy a significant victory, there is little evidence to suggest that the Muslim army he defeated was any more than a raiding force and not one bent on conquest" (Muslim and Christian Contact in the Middle Ages: A Reader, Rodriguez Jarbel, pp.54). "As a [modern] western scholar cogently argued, it seems that Muslim historians perceived these events in a Truer light than their western counterparts. The Frankish force at Pontiers encountered little more than a large band of raiders that had ventured beyond their usual raids". (Islam in Historical Perspective, Alexander Knysh, pp.342). Bernard Lewis also shares the same view. Did you want me to cite him too? I’ll cite primary sources as well. Just ask. Please, I’d love to educate a kindergarten level scholar like you. I’ll show you a quote from him that shows what Muslims thought of Western Europe. “If that is how the Islamic world looked from Europe, how did Europe look from the Islamic world? Rather, one might say, as central Africa looked to Victorian England. Arabic writings reflect the picture of a remote, unexplored wilderness inhabited by exotic, picturesque, and rather primitive people from whom there was nothing to fear and less to learn. A few intrepid explorers from Muslim Spain and North Africa ventured into darkest Europe and left accounts of their travels; we can hear the same note of some- what ainused disdain in their writings as we sometimes find in European travelers in Africa and Asia many centuries later. The Arabs were, of course, aware of Byzantium. They knew and re- spected the civilization of the ancient Greeks of Hellas, and also, though to a much lesser extent, of the Christian Greeks in Con- stantinople. But they had no respect - indeed there was no rea- son why they should have any respect - for central and western Europe,which in medieval times was on a significantly lower level of civilization, both moral and material, than the heartlands of Islam.”- (Europe and Islam, Bernard Lewis, pp.93). I can also quote his work and what he though about the Battle of Tours. The Great Muslim sieges of Constantinople were more significant in they eyes of Muslims as they represented military operations undertaken by the Caliph from the capital. Not some raid on the undertaken by a local governor in a backwater at the periphery of Umayyads(Tours). Did you want me to go on and steamroll a kindergarten level scholar like you? I can give you a taste of what our Muslim armies have to western forces for 1000 years.

    Byzantine says: BURN! Pretty horrible weapon, just like napalm or phosphorus bombs. Into the fires of battle, unto the anvil of War! Vulkan's fire beats in my breast, With it we shall smite the foes of the Emperor!^^

    uegvdczuVF Well, it could definitely be that. The primary ingredient is thought to be petroleum based, but saltpeter could be why it burns underwater, as you say. Maybe quicklime? Although I don't know if the oxygen from it is released as it burns, really.
