Passers-by in the city of Serres in Macedonia were left speechless when they saw a naked man standing outside the Church, which was closed at the time.
Upon the sight, locals immediately contacted the police who arrived on the scene and collected the man.
As it turned out the man, between 45-50, was suffering from psychological problems.
The Metropolitan Church released a statement on the bizarre incident saying the man had stripped outside the Temple requesting to be baptised. The statement confirmed the man was mentally unstable and had been hospitalised in a psychiatric institution in the past.
