  • Description

    In Athens June 29 - Feast of Peter and Paul - VISNEWS filmed a Cathedral service attempted by the Greek Royal family including King Paul, Queen Frederika and Crown Prince Constantine, Cabinet Ministers, diplomatic and military representatives, and church dignitaries. Mass was celebrated by Archbishop Theoklitos.

    Further shots show another service conducted by the Archbishop on the Areopagus - now a bare rock, but formerly the seat of the oligarchical and supreme court council of classical Athens and later the Scene of St Paul's address to the Athenians.

    Against the solemn backcloth of the Acropolis with its implications of pagan splendour, mass was sung here in commemoration of the first Christian sermon on Grecian soil.
