The Hungarian (Greek) Catholic Eparchy of Miskolc is an eparchy (Eastern Catholic diocese) of the Hungarian Greek Catholic Church (Latin Miskolcensis), a Metropolitan particular church sui juris which uses the Byzantine Rite in the Hungarian language.

It is a suffragan of the Hungarian Catholic Archeparchy of Hajdúdorog, a Metropolitanate sui juris and the Hungarian Catholics' only province, entirely in Hungary and depending on the Roman Congregation for the Oriental Churches.

Its cathedral episcopal see is Nagyboldogasszony püspöki székesegyház, in Miskolc, in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén (northeastern Hungary).

History

  • It was established on 4 June 1924 as Apostolic Exarchate of Miskolc, an Eastern Catholic missionary pre-diocesan jurisdiction (comparable to a Latin Apostolic Prefecture or here rather to an Apostolic Vicariate as all incumbents held titular sees). It consisted of the 21 Rusyn parishes formerly in the diocese of Pre?ov that remained in Hungarian territory after Czechoslovakia was created. They were provided with a distinct identity because they used Slavonic in the liturgy. By the 1940s, however, they had all begun to use Hungarian.[1]
  • On 5 March 2011 it gained territory from the then Hungarian Catholic Eparchy of Hajdúdorog, now its Metropolitan.
  • On 20 March 2015 it was promoted as Eparchy (Diocese) of Miskolc and became suffragan of the simultaneously elevated Metropolitan Archeparchy (Archdiocese) of Hajdúdorog, which also became the newly created Eparchy of Nyiregyháza's Metropolitan.
