- Patriarchate of Karlovci
The Patriarchate of Karlovci (Serbian: "Карловачка патријаршија" or "Karlovačka patrijaršija") was a
patriarchateof the Orthodox Churchthat existed between 1848 and 1920. It was formed in 1848, when former Metropolitanate of Karlovciwas elevated to the rank of patriarchate. The Patriarchate of Karlovci existed until 1920, when it was merged with Metropolitanate of Belgradeto form the Patriarchate of Serbia. The seat of the Patriarchate was in Karlovci (today Sremski Karlovci, Serbia).
At the May Assembly in Karlovci in 1848, the
Serbsliving in the Habsburg Monarchyproclaimed the creation of the Serbian Vojvodina, a Serb autonomous region within the Monarchy. The metropolitan of Karlovci, Josif Rajačić, was also proclaimed a patriarch, thus the Metropolitanate of Karlovcibecame a Patriarchate.
In the same year when the Patriarchate of Karlovci was created, the
Romaniansthat were previously under jurisdiction of the Metropolitanate of Karlovciproclaimed their separation from the Serbian church, and creation of their own. However, this was not recognized in that time, thus the separate Romanian church was created in 1864, by the emperor's decree.
In 1920, the Patriarchate of Karlovci was merged into the newly formed
Patriarchate of Serbia. The current patriarchs of Serbia are the successors of the patriarchs of Karlovci.
