The bishop of Kydonia and Apokorona Agathaggelos Ninolakis (1912-1935) and his time

Βρανάς, Χρήστος Ραϊλάκης Αντωνίου

Ὁ ἐπίσκοπος Κυδωνίας καὶ Ἀποκορώνου Ἀγαθάγγελος Νινολάκης (1912-1935) εἶναι μία ἀπὸ τὶς σημαίνουσες προσωπικότητες τῆς Κρήτης, ποὺ ἔπαιξε ἐνεργὸ καὶ σπουδαῖο ρόλο στὰ πράγματα τῆς Ἐκκλησίας κατὰ τὴ διάρκεια τῆς τελευταίας δεκα-ετίας τοῦ 19ου καὶ τῶν πρώτων τεσσάρων δεκαετιῶν τοῦ 20οῦ αἰώνα. Ὁ Κυδωνιεὺς κληρικὸς ἔζησε σὲ μία ἐποχὴ μεγάλων πολιτικῶν ἀνατακατάξεων καὶ σκληρῶν πολεμικῶν συγκρούσεων, ποὺ ἐπέφεραν ραγδαῖες μεταβολὲς ὄχι μόνο στὸν παγκόσμιο γεωπολιτικὸ χάρτη ἀλλὰ καὶ στὸν τρόπο σκέψεως τῶν ἀνθρώπων. Ὁ Ἀγαθάγγελος ἀπὸ τὴ νεαρή του ἡλικία ἐπέδειξε ἀξιόλογη ἐκκλησιαστικὴ δράση, ἡ ὁποία κλιμακώθηκε καὶ διευρύνθηκε ὅταν εἰσήχθη στὶς τάξεις τοῦ κλήρου, ἐνῶ κορυφώθηκε ὅταν ἀνέλαβε τὸ πηδάλιο τῆς ἐπισκοπῆς τῶν Χανίων. Τὸ πρόσωπο καὶ ἡ δράση τοῦ ἐπισκόπου Ἀγαθαγγέλου Νινολάκη ἀποτελεῖ τὸ θέμα τῆς ἀνὰ χεῖρας μεταπτυχιακῆς ἐργασίας, ποὺ ἔχει σκοπὸ νὰ ἀναδείξει τὴν προσφορὰ τοῦ ἐν λόγῳ ἱεράρχου στὴν Ἐκκλησία τῆς Κρήτης ἀλλὰ καὶ στὴν ἴδια τὴν Κρήτη, μία προσφορὰ ποὺ δὲν περιορίζεται στὴν ἐποχὴ ποὺ ὁ ἴδιος ἔζησε, ἀλλὰ ἐπεκτείνεται καὶ στὴ σημερινὴ ἐποχή, ποὺ ἡ Ἐκκλησία καλεῖται νὰ ἀντιμετωπίσει τὰ προβλήματα καὶ τὶς προκλήσεις τῆς τρίτης χιλιετίας.
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.
