Eastern Orthodox-tradition independent churches

[Note: many Orthodox believers may object to the concept of “independent” Orthodox churches. The intent is to list here churches that split or derived from the Eastern Orthodox tradition but which still maintain the historic apostolic succession for their bishops. A similar set of listings for independent apostolic-succession churches in the Catholic tradition can be found on the Catholic page, and for the Anglican tradition on the Protestant page under the Anglican heading. Other more strongly “independent” churches (Celtic tradition, Durate-Costa, etc.) that maintain apostolic succession are shown on the Apostolic-succession independent churches page. It is especially difficult to classify “dual-tradition” or “dual succession” churches, such as the Antiochian Catholic Church in America. ACCA, for example, has apostolic succession in Old Catholic, (Matthew), Syro-Indian Orthodox (Vilatte), and Byzantine Rite Roman Catholic (Aneed) lines. Such mixed churches are generally entered in the Apostolic-succession independent churches page unless they strongly self-describe as being of one tradition or another. My method generally accords with the classification schemes used in the Total Catholic Home Page and by Fr. Tony Begonja’s, Your Complete Guide to the World of Autocephalous (“Independent-Movement”) Churches in the Apostolic Succession page. But of course taxonomy is an art, not a science, so check around if you don’t see an entry here that you feel should be.]
