Links to the Letters of Gregory of Cyprus

August 11, 2018

The corpus of Letters of Gregory II of Cyprus, Patriarch of Constantinople from 1283 to 1289, was edited by Sophronios Eustratiadis and published in the journal  Ἐκκλησιαστικὸς Φάρος between the years 1908 and 1910. It is hard to come by, so, earlier this year, I uploaded to parts 3 through 5 of this corpus (parts 1 and 2 could already be found online). Below I supply links to all of the letters individually. Someone may perhaps find these links useful.


  • Letter 1 : To the bishop of Neocaesarea

Letters 2-45

Letters 46-65

Letters 66-115

The letters of the same most holy Patriarch, published during his patriarchate:

Letters 116-130

Letters 131-141

Letters 142-166

Letters 167-173

Letters 174-184

Letters 185-187

Letters 188-197; also, “Proclamation of his orthodoxy by those who supported him”

    All of the files on Google Books (introduction – letter 65) no longer seem downloadable. Could you tell me how to get them?

    Hello, Kyllis.

    I don’t know what caused the links to be broken — it seems either Google or WordPress changed their settings — but I’ve fixed the links. They should work now.

  4. Kyllis Says:

    I’ve just found that they can apparently be available only in US, so links wouldn’t have been broken. Sorry for that but anyway after changing my region via VPN I succeeded in downloading them.
    Many thanks, kyr bekkos!
