The new calendarists are those Eastern Orthodox churches that adopted the Revised Julian calendar, namely the Orthodox churches of Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch, Bulgaria, Greece, Cyprus, Romania, Poland, Czech and Slovak Orthodox Church, Albania and most of the Orthodox Church in America. The term is used to distinguish them from those in communion with the New Calendarists who are on the Old Calendar and also the Old Calendarists.(Clogg 2002, pp. 8-9)
