History

The Metropolis of Attica was established as the Metropolis of Attica and Megaridos in 1936. In 1968, Abp. Demitrios (Trakatellis), now Archbishop of America, was elected Metropolitan of Attica and Megaridos, but refused the election because a military junta was ruling Greece at that time. In 1974, the Metropolis was divided into three metropolises of which one was designated the Metropolis of Attica with its see in Kifissia. The others were the Metropolis of Mesogaia and Lavreotiki with its see in Spata and the Metropolis of Megara and Salamis with its see in Megara.

In 2004, the Holy Synod of the Church of Greece appointed Metr. Nicholas of Mesogaias and Lavreotiki as vicar of the Metropolis of Attica

On February 16, 2010, following a decision of the Holy Synod, the Metropolis of Attica was abolished. The territory of the former metropolis was divided into two new metropolises, the Metropolis of Kifissia, Amaroussion and Oropos and the Metropolis of Ilion, Acharnes and Petroupolis. [1]

The see of the Metropolis of Attica became vacant when its former Metropolitan Panteleimon was deposed by the Synod amid charges of financial and sexual scandal.[2]
