ПРАВОСЛАВИЕ В ИНДОНЕЗИИ (2007-2008)
The paper by Dmitry Petrovsky (The Division of Foreign Relations of Moscow Patriarchate) and Dr. Elena Cherepneva (The Institute of oriental studies of the Russian Academy of sciences) informs that on May 17th 2007 the Act on canonic communication between the Russian Orthodox Church and Russian Orthodox Overseas Church was signed, which brought to light new questions. The authors stress that today Indonesia is the only South-East Asian country where Orthodox propagation is successfully developing and the making of national Orthodox Church is under way. As a result of a December 2007 visit and meetings of the Moscow Patriarchy clergy and Archbishop of Sidney and Australia and New-Zeeland Illarion it was decided to add to charter of the organization «Indonesian Orthodox Church», which is officially registered by Indonesian government, the notion that the said structure is under canonic authority of the Russian Orthodox Church Moscow Patriarchy. At the same time there are problems because there are three church structures functioning in Indonesia. The authors discuss the prospects for a united Orthodox Church of Indonesia.
