Aimaq people

The Aimaq transliterated as Aimak and Aymaq, are a collection of Persian-speaking nomadic and semi-nomadic tribes. Aimaqs live in the West Central highlands of Afghanistan to the north of Herat, in Pakistan in the Kyber and Balochistan region and to a much lesser amount in the Khorasan Province of Iran, they speak a number of subdialects of the Aimaq dialect of Persian, however some southern groups of Taymani and Maleki Aymaqs have adopted the Pashto language. Aimaks were known as chahar Aymaqs: the Taymani, the Firozkohi, the Jamshidi and the Temuri. Other sources state that the Aimaq Hazara are one of the Chahar, with the Temuri instead being of the "lesser Aimaqs" or Aimaq-e digar along with the Tahiri, Zuri and Mishmast; the Aimaqs claim to be descended from the troops of Genghis Khan. Aymāq is a Turkic-Mongolic word that means "tribe" or "grazing territory". Aimaq Hazara and Temuri are the most Mongoloid of the Aimaqs; the Temuri and Aimaq Hazara live in yurts, whereas other Aimaqs live in traditional Afghan black tents.

The Aimaq are nomadic to semi-nomadic goat and sheep herders. They trade with villages and farmers during migrations for pastures for their livestock; the material culture and foodstuffs of the Aimaq include skins, milk, dairy products and more. They tend to trade these products to settled peoples in return for vegetables, fruits and other types of foods and goods. Aimaq tribes Estimates of the Aimaq population vary between 250,000 and 500,000, they are Sunni Muslims--except for the Jamshidi who are Ismaili Shia in the main--and in contrast to the Hazara, who are Shia Muslims.

According to the Nazi–Soviet Pact of 1939, the region was annexed by the Soviet Union and incorporated into the Storozhynets Raion of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic; the German population was resettled to Nazi Germany, while Romanian citizens were subjected to persecution. Two years when the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union was launched, the area was re-occupied by Romanian forces.

Metropolis of Argolis

The Metropolis of Argolis is a diocese of the Church of Greece, with its seat at Nafplio, covering the historical Argolid. It occupies the current boundaries of the modern Prefecture of Argolis, except for the former municipality of Ermionida; the see's original name was the Bishopric of Argos, according to Paulinus the Deacon, it was founded by Saint Andrew. The early bishops of Argos were suffragan to the Metropolis of Corinth, it was separated from Corinth renamed the Metropolis of Argos and Nafplio in 1189, confirming an earlier de facto merger with Nauplion. In 1833, it was renamed the Metropolis of Argolis, its cathedra was Argos, but it moved around the Argolid several times due to political factors. Its incumbent is Metropolitan Nektarios Antonopoulos; the previous metropolitan, from 1985 until his death, was Metropolitan Iakovos II, who died 26 March 2013. The current metropolitan was chosen on 18 October 2013. According to the article "Argos and Orthodoxy Through the Passage of the Ages", written by the Archimandrite Kallinikos D. Korobokis, the diocesan homilist, the history of the metropolitan see is recorded as follows: Paulinus relates that the Apostle Andrew first proclaimed the Gospel at Argos, thus he is traditionally held to be the founder of the Church there.

It is likely that the Apostle Paul came to Argos, some time around 50-60 AD. Argos acclaimed a bishop early on, separate from that of the bishopric of Nauplia, with both under the jurisdiction of the Metropolis of Corinth; the first known Bishop of Argos is Perigenes. At the end of the 9th century, the Bishop of Argos was Saint Peter the Wonderworker, who became the town's patron saint; the sees of Argos and Nauplion were unified in 1166. According to other sources, the unification of Argos and Nauplion had occurred a few years after 879. Throughout the minutes of the Council of 879 in Constantinople, written by the members, the Bishop of Argos is recorded as Theotimos, that of Nauplion as Andreas, which establishes a terminus post quem, but not a precise date for the unification. In 1189 the unified diocese of Argos and Nauplion was extracted from the Metropolis of Corinth and converted into a metropolitan see sui juris, with one John serving as its first metropolitan. According to the Argolic Calendar of 1910, produced by the Bishops of Argos and Nauplion, the Eparchy of Argos was led under the Metropolis of Corinth: According to the anonymous hand-written chronicle published in Δελτίω Ιστορ.

Εθνολ. Εταιρίας Τ.Β΄ σελ. 32, ed. Io. Sakellionos, there are 23 recorded Bishops of Nauplion, their names are as follows: Peter the Wonderworker Constantine Christopher Peter John Nicholas Sisinius Andrew Theodore Sisinius Peter Basil Theophylact Sisinius Gregory Nicholas, the kitor of Agios Andreas John, the kitor of the new church Gregory Constantine Theodore Leon Nicitas John, who led the diocese down to its new title of Nauplion and Argos. In 1212, the local Orthodox hierarchy was replaced by Latin hierarchs during the period of Frankish rule in which the two towns formed part of the Lordship of Argos and Nauplia; this state of affairs lasted until 1540, with the withdrawal of the Venetians after the Third Ottoman-Venetian War. Afterwards, the diocese returned to the control of Greek Orthodox hierarchs, but in 1686, the seat of the bishop moved from Argos to Nafplio. Shortly after the Venetians returned, with them, a Roman Catholic hierarchy, the Orthodox administration re-located to the village of Merbaka, returning to Argos in 1770 in the wake of attacks by Albanian irregulars.

At the outbreak of the Greek War of Independence, the seat moved again to Nafplio. The bishop, Grigorios Kalamaras was killed in the Siege of Tripolitsa, is termed an ethnomartyr a national martyr, Greek: ἐθνομάρτυρας; this designation is a popular one, has no canonical status making the bishop a saint, as death in battle does not qualify one for martyrdom. After the creation of the Greek state but before the creation of the new autocephalous Church of Greece in 1850, the diocese underwent a brief period of successive reorganizations as the Patriarchate of Constantinople adjusted to having large numbers of faithful outside the Ottoman millet system, it was merged with the Metropolis of Corinth, with the addition of the Bishopric of Hydra in 1842, before its present jurisdiction was created between 1850-52. The Bishop of Epidavros is suffragan to the Metropolitan Bishop of Argolis, serves as the auxiliary bishop for the metropolis; the General Hierarocratic Commissioner — akin to a western vicar general or archdeacon — is Archpriest Vasileios Soulandros.

The Roman Catholic name for the diocese was Dioecesis Argolicensis. It is listed as suppressed, but in the past was used as the name of a titular see. Prior to 1882, the term used by the Catholic Church to describe this and other Orthodox dioceses governed by Latin clergy was in partibus infidelium
