Kalinik II the Greek (Serbian: Калиник II Грк, Latin: Callinicus II) was the last Serbian Patriarch (1765–1766) before the Ottoman Empire abolished the Serbian Patriarchate of Peć for the fifth and last time. Kalinik resigned his title and sent a petition to the Ecumenical Patriarch in Constantinople asking for the abolition of the Peć patriarchate, citing accumulated debts as the main reason for this motion, signed by him and 5 other bishops. On 11 September 1766, The Patriarch of Constantinople convinced the Sultan to abolish the Patriarchate of Peć and place its dioceses under the jurisdiction of Constantinople. However a metropolitan bishop remained in Belgrade during the period of the Peć patriarchate's abolition.
