The '''Orthodox Church of Greece - Holy Synod in Resistance''', also derisively referred to as the '''Cyprianites''', were a resisting, [[Old Calendarists|Old Calendar]] synod established on April 5/18, 1985, by Metropolitan Cyprian of Oropos and Fili, and Metropolitan Giovanni of Sardinia.
It was theologically distinctive from the rest of the Old Calendarist Churches in that they did not officially view those Churches which accepted the new (“Revised Julian”) calendar as completely outside of the Orthodox Church and sacramentally devoid of grace, but as compromised or “ailing” portions of the Church awaiting final canonical judgment.
