Legacy - April 14, 2006

The Legacy assesses the activities and the initiatives taken by Archbishop Spyridon during his three-year ministry at the helm of the Greek Orthodox Church of America (1996-1999). Reading his words in addresses, encyclicals and other documents, one is struck by the realistic goals he set in response to the critical challenge of ensuring the survival of Orthodoxy and Hellenism in the vast melting pot that is the United States.

This documentary book reveals many aspects of the contemporary history of the Archdiocese of America: the backrooms of power vying to gain financial control over the highly prosperous and largest eparchy of the Ecumenical Throne, the phenomena of plutocracy and nepotism in the current administration as well as the clear signs of decline from 1999 onward.
