The issue of church-state relations in Greece and of an eventual fuller separation of church and state resurfaces regularly in Greece’s public discourse; every time this is the case, the issue of clergy wages, which are currently provided by the state i.e. the public sector, is raised as a focal point in this discussion. In spite of the subject’s eminent position in the public sphere, concrete facts concerning its details and their complexity emerge rather rarely, if at all. This working paper attempts to remedy this by providing the existing framework, its history and development, as well as an overview of the legal archipelago on which it stands and of its correlation with the equally issue of church assets. Finally, two different proposals concerning possible future developments on the subject are provided.
