LONDON – In a ceremony at the historic Saint Sophia Cathedral in London, Athens lawyer Sakis Kehagioglou was installed as Archon Dikaiofylax of the Ecumenical Throne by the decision of His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.

The office of Archon of the Great Church of Christ is awarded by the Ecumenical Patriarch to citizens who contribute to the common good. The title of Archon Dikaiofylax was awarded during the Byzantine period to jurists who defended the rights of the Church.
