Patriarch sacked

I wrote a note a while ago about some bizarre scandals involving the Greek Orthodox Church and the Greek Patriarch of Jerusalem. It would appear that a synod of bishops has moved to sack him.

What do you call it when you get rid of a patriarch? Do you depose him? Defrock him? Depatriate him? At any rate, it would appear that the leaders are moving towards his formal canning with bell, book, and candle.

Comments

Well, it says dismissed, but I think there is another word for it.

An especially wise move after this happened last week.

Still boggling, I'm Ekristheh Akanora.
