Canon 438

1. The patriarch is competent to suppress, within the territorial boundaries of the Church over which he presides, a monastery sui iuris or a filial one of eparchial right or a stauropegial one, for a grave reason, with the consent of the permanent synod and at the request of, or after having consulted,

the eparchial bishop if the monastery is of eparchial right, and

after having consulted the superior of the monastery, and the

president of the confederation should the monastery be confederated, save for the right of suspensive recourse to the Roman

Pontiff. 2. Other monasteries sui iuris or filial monasteries

can be suppressed only by the Apostolic See. 3. A subsidiary

monastery can be suppressed by a decree given by the superior of

the monastery on which it depends in accordance with the norms of

the typicon, with the prior consent of the eparchial bishop. 4.

The property of a suppressed monastery sui iuris reverts to the

confederation if it was confederated; otherwise upon the eparchy,

or, if it was stauropegial, upon the patriarchal Church. The

property of a suppressed dependent monastery devolves upon the

monastery sui iuris. To decide on the property of a monastery of

papal right is reserved to the Apostolic See, without prejudice

in all instances to the will of the donors.
