The 18th Century Bishop Anthimos of Irinoupolis

The indispensable Cypriot blog NOCTOC has posted in Greek and English a fascinating article about the Bishop Anthimos, titular bishop of Irinoupolis and aid to the Patriarch Sylvester. It is of high interest for the history of the Patriarchate of Antioch in the period immediately after the Melkite schism, as well as for the history of relations between the Patriarchate of Antioch and the Church of Cyprus. Too little work has been done on the Patriarchate during this historically crucial period, so go and read it!
