As the current regular member of the Holy Synod of Bishops of the Serbian Orthodox Church, but also as a member of several previous convocations, the Metropolitan is very well acquainted with all the efforts to finally place archival material of church-administrative origin inadequate space and gain archival and scientific research dignity, as they deserve.
