The same would hold true for Germany if they were willing to accept these terms. A few weeks later the three designated Preceptors for “Digenis Akritas” Nr.1 William E. Kaloudis, “Constantinos Palaiologos” Nr.2 EmKt Stephanos Paipetis and “Dionysios Areopagitis” Nr.3 EmKt Efstathios Liakopoulos, went to Edinburgh and were installed as Preceptors. Work under The Great Priory of Scotland commenced in the Autumn of 1980. After having been installed on 17 March 1981 as Grand Prior of The District Grand Priory of Greece, William E. Kaloudis petitioned for a Charter of an Independant Great Priory. The request was appoved at the next quarterly Meeting and the date was set for 28 November 1981. The Consecration took place on the pre planned date, followed by the installation of William E. Kaloudis as Most Eminent and Reverend Grand Master. The ceremony was the crowning of the dream and aim to have all Masonic Bodies in Greece Sovereign and Independent. It is needless to say that it was conducted in the most impressive manner by the Grand Master of the Great Priory of Scotland, MEm & Rev David Ian Liddle-Grainger, assisted by his Grand Constable (at that time) Robert McIntyre who later became Grand Master.
This concludes the short history of the formation of the Great Priory of Greece. The history of the first years will have to be written in the future, commencing with the fulfilment of the historical idea of initiating the World Synods of Great Priories.
