The '''Aromanian-Macedonian Church''' 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 Pindus and Voivodship of Macedonia|Principality of Pindus and Voivodship of Macedonia]] (1941-1944). Prince Alchibade ([[w:Alchiviad Diamandi di Samarina|Alchiviad Diamandi di Samarina]]) wanted to create an Aromanian Orthodox church under the [[jurisdiction]] of the [[Church of Romania]]. However, Voivod Julius ([[w:Gyula Cseszneky|Baron Gyula Cseszneky de Milvány et Cseszneg]]), who himself was a [[Roman Catholic]], supported the idea of founding a Catholic church for the philocatholics among the Aromanians and 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.
