Does anybody have some links about the history of the OCA.  I am particularly intersted in their relationship with the MP and ROCOR in the first half of the 20th century.  Hopefully nothing too polemical, but if that is all that is out there that is fine too.

Thanks!

Here are a few links straight from the horse's mouth on the history of the OCA:  http://www.oca.org/pages/orth_chri/Q-and-A/index.html#oca

And on the relationship between the OCA and ROCOR:

If you can find it, an out-of-print book called "Orthodox America 1794-1976" has good history (it was published for the Bicentennial of the US in 1976).  A newer book, Orthodox Christians in North America 1794-1994 has some good hx as well.
As someone who's been interested in this a lot in the past, I can tell you that most of the ROCOR-published material is vehemently anti-OCA, and much of the OCA material does not support the legitimacy of the ROCOR.  Not a bright spot in the history of Orthodoxy in America.

The Truth About the Russian Church Abroad is a good resource, in my opinion. It was written by  M. Rodzianko, the brother of the now departed Bishop Basil Rodzianko of the OCA.

 It's available in PDF format here: www.monasterypress.com/anonftp/pub/Rocatruth.pdf

It can also be ordered here:

You can also read a bit about it on the OCA's webpage(not much). Take a look at the 5th, 6th, and 7th All American Councils.

Thank you everybody...I will go through the material presented (it may take some time though before I can come back to comment as I suddenly have become very busy...).  What got me thinking about all this is a picture in Fr. Seraphim's Bio taken of a few monks at the Russian Monastery on the Holy Mountain - three of whom become bishops, one MP, one OCA, one ROCOR.

There is another book by Alexander Boglepov called Towards An American Orthodox Church that deals with some of the historical issues of Orthodoxy in America.  A lot of it has to do with canon law, but it is still an interesting read.  It is available through St. Vladimir's Orthodox press.
