The First Synod and the Consecrations of 1935 
 
 
In 1935, two hierarchs of the Orthodox Church of Greece (Metropolitan 
Germanus  Mavromatis  of  Demetrias  and  Metropolitan  Chrysostom 
Demetriou  of  Zacynthus)  and  one  retired  hierarch  of  the  Ecumenical 
Patriarchate  (Metropolitan  Chrysostom  Kavourides  of  Florina)  joined  the 
Sacred  Struggle  and  assumed  the  leadership  of  the  Old  Calendarists  of 
Greece. Germanus of Demetrias became the President of the Holy Synod and 
the  Locum  Tenens  of  the  Metropolis  of  Athens.  This  act  was  most  canonical 
because  the  innovative  “Archbishop”  Chrysostom  Papadopoulos  of  Athens 
had  illegally  usurped  the  Archdiocesan  throne  in  1923,  whereas  the  lawful 
Archbishop was Theocletus Menopoulos (+1931). 
 

 
 
Assisted by the Metropolitans Chrysostom of Florina and Chrysostom 
of  Zacynthus,  Metropolitan  Germanus  of  Demetrias,  as  the  canonical  and 
lawful  President  of  the  Synod,  performed,  in  Keratea  of  Attica,  the 
consecrations of four new bishops. Those consecrated were Bishop Germanus 
Varykopoulos of the Cyclades, Bishop Christopher Chatzis of Megaris, Bishop 
Polycarp  Liosis  of  Diaulia,  and  Bishop  Matthew  Karpathakis  of  Bresthena. 
The  first  three  Metropolitans  and  the  abovementioned  newly‐ordained  four 
Bishops constituted the first re‐establishment of the canonical Holy Synod of 
the  Orthodox  Church  of  Greece  since  the  time  of  Archbishop  Theocletus 
Menopoulos of Athens, who had been dismissed in 1923 and reposed in 1931.
