Abstract: When speaking about the Autocephaly of the Serbian Orthodox Church 800 years ago, one always has in mind that the history of events related to St. Sava is quite well known to the general public, but what has particularly caught my attention at this time is the question: how the autocephaly of the Serbian church and the events around it can be a paradigm of the canonical acquisition of the autocephaly?

It is an informative and very interesting article.  Thanks for posting it!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I'm sure I'll have more questions over this piece, but to start. If this is the main reason for having an autocephalous church that autocephalous churches are divided, although only for administrative and practical reasons

Why is this status such a subject of contention between jurisdictions?

It depends on whose version of practicality.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.
