Eastern churches
Greek court upholds eviction notice to Esphigmenou monks
Correct — the patriarch of Constantinople is in charge. The monks may mean well but it’s like the history of the Old Believers in Russia. Such types are often quite Catholic (and essentially right about Vatican II and the World Council of Churches as it is today) but also quite mad. Freedom of religion where such is the law would mean they would have the right to set up house somewhere other than buildings and grounds owned by the patriarch.
