The Holy Synod of Greece was formed after the newly independent nation of Greece was established in the 1820s. The independence of the Church of Greece and its synod were recognized by the Church of Constantinople in 1850. The Holy Synod of Greece is the highest governing body of the Church of Greece with supreme authority vested in the synod of all the diocesan bishops under the presidency of the Archbishop of Athens and all Greece. A Standing Synod that consists of the Primate and twelve bishops, each serving for one term on a rotating basis, handles details of administration.
