The Great Church of Constantinople

Main ecclesiastical center of the Orthodox Church throughout the world, the Ecumenical Patriarchate has its historical foundation at Pentecost and the early Christian communities founded by the Holy Apostles.

According to tradition, St. Andrew, the "First-Called," proclaimed the Gospel in the vast regions of Asia Minor, the Black-Sea, Thrace and Achaia where he was martyred. In the year 36 AD founded the local church in Byzantium, the banks of the Bosphorus, later Constantinople - the city of Constantine (now Istanbul, Turkey). St. Andrew, the patron saint of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, is celebrated on November 30 in the church calendar.

The title of Ecumenical Patriarch date from the 6th century AD, with a unique historical privilege of the Archbishop of Constantinople, surpassing the state and ethnic boundaries. The Ecumenical Patriarch is the spiritual leader of about 300 million Orthodox Christians worldwide.

The Ecumenical Patriarchate:

The Ecumenical Patriarchate is headquartered in Constantinople, now Istanbul, Turkey. It is also called "Church of Constantinople", or "Holy Great Church of Christ." The unorthodox theologians and scholars usually use conventional expression "Church of Phanar."

This Church was born of the preaching of St. Andrew the Apostle and therefore is an Apostolic See. From its founding, the Ecumenical Patriarchate assumed the role of spiritual guide, civilizing promotion and global influence. For centuries, peoples and nations have the positive influence of the Ecumenical Patriarchate and, thanks to the happy evangelization and missionary radiated from this center, "resurrected in Christ." Thus they formed several Orthodox Archdioceses that under the Fulgida spiritual guidance and protection of Constantinopolitan headquarters, defended the Christian faith of the various heresies that threatened.

The Ecumenical Patriarchate is one of five ancient patriarchates of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. In the first millennium the Church, as is known, consisted of the patriarchates of Rome, Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch and Jerusalem. After the schism of 1054 the undivided Church of the first millennium split in the Western Church (the Patriarchate of Rome) and Eastern Church (the other patriarchates of the East). Within the latter the Patriarchate of Constantinople took the first place as plenipotentiary judge in the event of disputes of any kind between the other Patriarchs.

The prominence of the Patriarch of Constantinople is already attested in the seventh century when it began to receive the title "Ecumenical". This expression indicates its top spot - first among equals - by the assumed power, whether the spiritual splendor of all the Patriarchs of the East.

Incumbent upon the Patriarch of Constantinople:

- Synods convene Pan-Orthodox, or Sites;

- To urge the Metropolitans and oversee its operations;

- Judge and decide on merit instances, resources, etc., on the part of Metropolitans;

- The right of the "Stavropighion," that is, the right to put under their direct control monasteries and churches of the bishops under his jurisdiction.

After the fall of the Ottoman Empire the Ecumenical Patriarchate was recognized as "Institution Pan-Orthodox". During the Pan-Orthodox Conference of 1961 in the Pauline island of Rhodes, the Ecumenical Patriarchate unanimously was recognized as spiritual representative of Orthodoxy. Under the Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras I guide, the Ecumenical Patriarchate has distinguished itself particularly, rising to a remarkable prestige plan. Recently, with the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I guide, I reached a high level of honor and respectability.

Currently, following the appointment of his predecessor Dimitrios I Patriarch of blessed memory, the Patriarch Bartholomew I still serene "path of love, peace and unity", visiting the most ancient patriarchates of the Orthodox East and meeting with people and authorities religious and political. Everyone runs his affectionate message of peace and unity.

Through these speeches enlightened by faith and hope, the Ecumenical Patriarch is done close to the people suffering, demonstrating seriousness, dignity and wisdom in his mission and his happy activity in his favor. In this way, their interventions testify their collaboration for the consolidation of peace in the world, the cessation of the war, respect for the man and his freedom, for man, being created by God, is his image and likeness and has the right to life worthy and true prosperity.
