Orthodox bishops of Prague

The first Orthodox mission in Czech lands was led by Saints Cyril and Methodius, some time before the East-West Schism, with its centre in Moravia. The current Czech and Slovak Orthodox Church comes from the Czech Orthodox clubs and partly arose from the early Czechoslovak Church which separated from the Roman Catholic Church in the 1920s. Consequently, the Czechoslovak Church tended towards Protestantism and an Orthodox branch split off. The Prague Archeparchy encompasses the whole of Bohemia.
