Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople

The Ecumenical Patriarchate is one of the fourteen autocephalous DSC_0086churches that together compose the Eastern Orthodox Church. It is headed by the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, currently Bartholomew I.

 

 

Because of its historical location at the capital of the former Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire and its role as the Mother Church of most modern Orthodox churches, the Ecumenical Patriarchate holds a special place of honor within Orthodoxy and serves as the seat for the Ecumenical Patriarch, who enjoys the status of Primus inter pares (first among equals) among the world’s Eastern Orthodox prelates and is widely regarded as the representative and spiritual leader of the world’s 300 million Orthodox Christians.
