Eparchy of Slavonia (Serbian Cyrillic: Епархија славонска, Croatian: Eparhija slavonska) is an eparchy (diocese) of the Serbian Orthodox Church encompassing areas of western and central Slavonia, in Croatia. Since 2014, the Eparchy is headed by bishop Jovan Ćulibrk.[1]

History[edit]

The Eparchy was historically known as Eparchy of Požega (Пожешка епархија) in 16th and 17th century, and later as Eparchy of Pakrac (Пакрачка епархија). It was created soon after 1557, under the jurisdiction of the Serbian Patriarchate of Peć. During 18th and 19th century, it was under jurisdiction of the Serbian Orthodox Metropolitanate of Karlovci. Since 1920, it belongs to the united Serbian Orthodox Church.
