Inscribed signature: "To: [illegible]/ Benedict/ Patriarch of Je-/ rusalem" in blue felt tip. 4½x3. Affixed is a newspaper photograph of the Patriarch. His Beatitude Benedict Papadopoulos of Jerusalem (1892-1980), Patriarch of Jerusalem's Greek Orthodox Church, was elected to his exalted position on January 29, 1957. Upon is election, the Jordanian government approved a law establishing new regulations which allowed the indigenous Arab community of the Orthodox Church a role in the financial affairs of the Patriarch, as well as requiring the church's offices to be citizens of Jordan; lobbying by Benedict resulted in the death of the invasive reforms. Benedict is perhaps best remembered for his rehabilitation of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the alleged crucifixion and burial site of Jesus Christ. Toned. Corners rounded. Slightly soiled. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
