Abstract: The lattice of all complete congruence relations of a complete lattice is itself a complete lattice. In this paper, we characterize this lattice as a complete lattice. In other words, for a complete lattice $ L$, we construct a complete lattice $ K$ such that $ L$ is isomorphic to the lattice of complete congruence relations of $ K$. Regarding $ K$ as an infinitary algebra, this result strengthens the characterization theorem of congruence lattices of infinitary algebras of G. Grätzer and W. A. Lampe. In addition, we show how to construct $ K$ so that it will also have a prescribed automorphism group.
