This thesis provides an analytical presentation of the situation of the Greek Church of Cyprus, the Morea and Constantinople during the earlier part of the Frankish Era (1196-1303). It examines the establishment of the Latin Church in Constantinople, Cyprus and Achaea and it attempts to answer questions relating to the reactions of the Greek Church to the Latin conquests. It considers the similarities and differences in the establishment in Constantinople, the Morea and Cyprus, the diocesan structure, agreements regarding the fate of the Greek ecclesiastical properties, the payment of tithes and the agreements of 1220-1222. Moreover it analyses the relations of the Greek Church of Cyprus, the Greek Church of Constantinople and the Morea with the Latin Church. For instance it details the popes' involvement in the affairs of the Church in these three significant areas, the ecclesiastical differences between the Greek and the Latin Church, the behaviour of the Greek patriarchs, archbishops and bishops within the Greek Church, the reaction of the Greeks towards the establishment of the Latin Church, and significant events such as the martyrdom of the thirteen monks of Kantara and the promulgation of the Bulla Cypria. The third topic area pertains to the relationship of the Greek Church of the Morea, Constantinople and Cyprus with the secular authority. It discusses the attitude of the king of Cyprus, the rulers of the Morea and the emperor of Constantinople towards the problems between the Latin and Greeks, the relationship of the Latin nobility with the Greeks, and the involvement of the crown regarding the ecclesiastical property and possible explanations for the attitude of the Latin crown towards the Greeks.
