The "other" Church of Estonia
From the standpoint of "Mainstream Chalcedonian Bias", this article ought to be renamed to Church of Estonia (Ecumenical Patriarchate) if the other is Church of Estonia (Moscow Patriarchate). Otherwise, it seems like OrthodoxWiki is "endorsing" one jurisdiction over another. Note, that no one in the world, except the EP recognizes the "Estonian Apostolic Orthodox Church". --[[User:Aleks|Aleks]] 01:05, June 22, 2008 (UTC)
 
: The reason for the difference in naming is that the EP's Estonian church is not regarded by the EP as a constituent part—rather, the EP regards the Estonian church as autonomous, having the same status as Finland, Sinai, etc. The MP, however, regards its Estonian church as being essentially an integral part of the MP, in contrast with the [[Church of Ukraine]], which it regards as autonomous. Thus, the distinction.
 
I'd be interested to see a citation on the EP's Estonian church's recognition&mdash;many of the ancient churches tend to follow the EP's lead on such matters. Do we have something published which indicates the position of Alexandria, Antioch, Jerusalem, Greece, Cyprus, etc.? &mdash;[[User:ASDamick|<font size="3.5" color="green" face="Adobe Garamond Pro, Garamond, Georgia, Times New Roman">Fr.
