The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Naxos, Tinos, Andros, and Mykonos (Latin: Archidioecesis Naxiensis, Andrensis, Tinensis, et Myconensis) is an Archdiocese of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic church in insular Greece.[1][2]

Its Cathedral archiepiscopal see is the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Rosary, in the Village of Xinara, on Tinos, but is also has a Co-Cathedral of the Presentation of the Lord, in Chora.

The ecclesiastical territory comprises most of the Aegean islands in Greece, including, but not limited to Naxos, Andros, Tinos and Mykonos.

The current Archbishop is Nikólaos Printesis, who was appointed in 1993.

History[edit]

Originally erected as the Diocese of Naxos in the 13th century, the Latin bishopric was promoted to the rank of Metropolitan Archdiocese of Naxos in 1522, after the fall of Rhodes (Ottoman conquest), when the Archiepiscopal see for its Knights Hospitallers' crusader state was in fact moved from there.

On June 3, 1919, the Archdiocese of Naxos was united with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Tinos and Mykonos (which in 1824 had absorbed the suppressed Roman Catholic Diocese of Andros, without adopting its title) to form the present Archdiocese of Naxos, Tinos, Andros and Mykonos, whose new name also includes Andros.

Province[edit]

The Metropolitan's ecclesiastical province comprises his own archdiocese and the following suffragan dioceses :
