[en] The British Mandatory Government established a Commission in order to control the finances and the vast landed property of the Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem. This paper sketches out the Commission’s early activity, arguing that its significant powers at the expense of the religious apparatus and its operation were not so much grounded on the need to facilitate the recovery of the historical church, but were actually determined by the socio-political developments at a local and international level as well as by the need to lay the foundation of British authority during a fluid period for public order in Palestine region.
