Summary/Abstract: A change at the throne of the Serb Orthodox Church /SPC/ will effectuate no major changes in the SPC structure, organization and functioning or, for that matter, in its secular ambitions. In this context, newly elected Patriarch Irinej (Gavrilovic), former bishop of Nis, guarantees continuity. In other words, SPC will be trying to safeguard the space it has occupied at Serbia’s public scene over the past ten years, strengthen its position and further expand its influence on governmental policies.
