Albanian Archbishop about Hagia Sophia: This decision turns us back to dark times

In other language: BGGR

In a statement to the Greek newspaper To Vima, on Saturday afternoon, Archbishop Anastasios of Tirana and all Albania deemed the decision and actions of Turkey as despicable as they undermine our greatest hope for the peaceful coexistence of religions and cultures.

“This decision turns us back to dark times. A country like Turkey, that wants to be at the forefront, decided to assume the role of the cultural rearguard that arrived too late. Adding the’oil’ of religion to the fire, in order to serve nationalist purposes, is a sin and a mistake. The noble purpose of religion is to soothe wounds and to calm the souls of human beings,” he said.
