Republic of Macedonia[edit]

The Macedonian Orthodox church declared autocephaly on July 19, 1967, from the Serbian church, a move which is not recognised by any of the churches of the Eastern Orthodox Communion, and since then, the Macedonian Orthodox Church is not in communion with any Orthodox Church.[13] Several Serbian monasteries are thus in control of the non-recognized MOC, in reality part of the Orthodox Ohrid Archbishopric. The following are founded by Serbs or in the control of the SOC:
