Henryk Muszynski

Henryk Muszynski (born March 20, 1933) is the Archbishop of Gniezno, Poland, having been appointed by Pope John Paul II when the Polish hierarchy was reorganized in March 1992. He had previously been Bishop of Wloclawek since 1987.

Traditionally the Archbishop of Gniezno is Primate of Poland, but when the reorganization severed the See from that of Warsaw an exception was made for the lifetime of the present Archbishop of Warsaw, who had previously been Archbishop of both cities.

Archbishop Muszynski has sought to improve relations with Jews in the Polish-German border areas.
