The '''Aromanian -Macedonian Church of Pindus''' was an initiative to create an [[autonomy|autonomous ]] church for ethnic [[w:Aromanians|Aromanians]] and [[w:macedonians|Macedonians]] during the brief existence of the [[w:Principality of Pindusand Voivodship of Macedonia|Principality of Pindus and Voivodship of Macedonia]] episode (1941-1944). Prince Alchibade (Alkiviadis Diamandis[[w:Alchiviad Diamandi di Samarina|Alchiviad Diamandi di Samarina]]) wanted to create an Aromanian orthodox Orthodox church under the [[jurisdiction ]] of the patriarch [[Church of Romania]]. However, however, Prince Voivode Julius (Baron [[w:Gyula Milvanyi Cseszneky|Count Gyula István Cseszneky de Milvány et Cseszneg]]) , who himself was a [[Roman Catholic ]], supported the idea to found of founding a catholic Catholic church for the philocatholics among the Aromaniansand Macedonians, but the traditional identification with the Orthodox Church kept the majority of the Aromanians closer to Greek identity, while Macedonians preferred to join the [[Bulgarian Orthodox Church]]. The Aromanian -Macedonian Church ceased to exist after the end of World War II.
