The Bishop of Kydonia and Apokorona Agathaggelos Ninolakis (1912-1935) is one of the most influential persons in Crete, who played a dynamic and important role in matters of the church during the last decade of the 19th century and the first four decades of the 20th century. This cleric of Kydonia lived in a time of great political upheaval and difficult military conflict, that brought rapid changes not only in the global geopolitical map, but also in the way people thought. At a young age, Aggathaggelos showed remarkable ecclesiastical action, which escalated and expanded when he entered into the the clergy, and reached a pinnacle when he took on the leadership role of Bishop of Chania. The person and actions of Bishop Agathaggelos Ninolakis is the subject of this graduate thesis, which is intended to show his contribution to the church of Crete, but also to Crete itself, a contribution that is not limited to the time in which he lived, but that extends into the present, a time in which the church is called upon to address the problems and challenges of the 3rd millennium.
