The Original New Testament

After the death of Ananias, Metropolitan of Stromnitsa, Radovista and Tikves, the Patriarch of Constantinople and the Holy Synod elected Father Gregorios to replace him, and requested the Sultan's approval of this appointment. The appointment was approved upon payment of 13500 aspers to the public treasury. The document details the metropolitan's rights, spiritual and administrative, over the clergy and faithful in his see. It also orders that public officials not obstruct the metropolitan in the execution of his duties, but rather support him when he asks for their assistance.
