Greece and Orthodoxy are closely connected due to the country’s historical past.
During several occupations, and especially during the 400 years of Ottoman rule, the Orthodox religion played a vital role in maintaining the Greek ethnic and cultural identity.
Even the Greek Constitution guarantees freedom of faith, but defines the "prevailing religion" of Greece as the Eastern Orthodox Church of Christ.
Most Greeks, whether deeply religious or not, revere and respect the Orthodox Christian faith, attend church, observe major religious holiday and are emotionally attached to Orthodox Christianity as their "national" religion.
Muslims, Jewish and Roman Catholic are the other religious groups of Greece.
Today the Church is more important in political, civic, and governmental affairs than in many other secular countries.
