Abstract: We classify homogeneous Einstein metrics on compact irreducible symmetric spaces. In particular, we consider symmetric spaces with rank$(M)\!> 1$, not isometric to a compact Lie group. Whenever there exists a closed proper subgroup $G$ of Isom$(M)$ acting transitively on $M$ we find all $G$-homogeneous (non-symmetric) Einstein metrics on $M$.
