The Metropolis of Thessalonica is one of the metropolises of the New Lands in Greece that are within the jurisdiction of the Church of Constantinople but de facto are administered for practical reasons as part of the Church of Greece, under an agreement between the churches of Athens and Constantinople. It has been an episcopal see from Apostolic times. The metropolis, one of the most ancient sees, is located in Greek Macedonia.

History

Thessalonica, as a seat of importance to Christianity, is traced to the Apostle Paul's missionary travels in the first century. According to the Acts of the Apostles, Paul visited Thessalonica on his second missionary journey and it became an early see of the Church. According to Origen, Gaius was the first bishop of Thessalonica[1].
