== History ==
In 1979, a [[schism]] occurred in the Synod of the so-called [[Florinites]] or [[Church of Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece]] (GOC). Metropolitan [[Callistos of Corinth]] and Metropolitan Anthony
disagreed with the 1974 Declaration by Archbishop Auxentius, which declared that the new-calendar [[Church of Greece]] has no grace. Callistos and Anthony [[odrination|ordained]] eight other [[bishop]]s, declared Auxentius to be deposed, and registered their Synod as the [[Church of Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece]] (GOC, so-called " Callistoites").
In 1980, the Synod entered into communion with the Synod of the [[Old Calendar Orthodox Church of Romania]]. However, in 1983, the Synod disintegrated. Metropolitan Callistos quit the Synod, Bishop Maximos and two others returned to the Florinites and the other bishops joined the synod of the True Orthodox Church of Greece
Two members of the disintegrated Synod, bishops [[Cyprian of Fili]] and Giovanni of Sicily organized the Holy Synod in Resistance.
