Summary/Abstract: This paper deals with the documentary movement of the autocephalous movement of the Albanian Orthodox Church from the first years of the XX century to the Berat Congress of 1922. The article aims to address in several aspects the efforts of patriots, clergy and Albanian state leaders in function of the creation of the national church, which in turn was considered as a very important element of the consolidation of spiritual and political independence from the Istanbul Ecumenical Patriarchate. This is because Patrikana was under the influence of Greek politics, which had manifestly exposed its territorial claims to the Albanian state.
