Bulgarian Orthodox Church: Orthodox autocephalous church
The Bulgarian Orthodox Church, legally the Patriarchate of Bulgaria, is an autocephalous Orthodox Church. It is the oldest Slavic Orthodox Church, with some 6 million members in Bulgaria and between 1.5 and 2 million members in a number of European countries, the Americas, Australia, New Zealand and Asia. It was recognized as autocephalous Church by the Patriarchate of Constantinople in AD 870, becoming Patriarchate in 918/919.
