was a long pending dispute about precedence. The patriarch claimed that the bishopric of Cyprus was subject to the see of Antioch : the Cypriots would not allow this on the ground that theirs was the older church. The present archbishop of Cyprus enjoys all these privileges. I learned these details from various Cypriot monks, and their truth was confirmed by the archbishop Paisios.
