    As Thessaloniki and nothern Greece in general became part of the modern Greek state just 92 years ago, its people have special ties to the Greek institutions that have been alive for over 1000 years - such as the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Costantinople (in Istanbul, Turkey).
    The Orthodox church of nothern Greece also has a loose connection to the Orthodox Administration in athens, but sees still to the Patriarch in Istanbul as its spiritual leader.

    Christians of Thessaloniki.

    In Roman times it was visited by Saint Paul, who preached the new religion, and who later addressed his two well-known epistles (the oldest written documents of Christian literature) to the Christians of Thessaloniki.
