Metropolitan Amfilohije

Metropolitan Amfilohije
Amfilohije Radovic

Amfilohije Radović (Serbian: Амфилохије Радовић, pronounced [amfilɔ̌xijɛ râːdɔv̞itɕ]) (born January 7, 1938) is the current Metropolitan of the Metropolitanate of Montenegro and the Littoral, Archbishop of Cetinje.

His role in the Yugoslav Wars is considered controversial.[1][2][3][4]



Radović was born in Bare Radovića, in Lower Morača. His first name at birth was Risto (Ристо). Named Bishop of Banat in 1985, he held the title until 1991. That year, he was picked to be the Metropolitan of the Metropolitanate of Montenegro and the Littoral, a position he holds to this day. On November 13, 2007, after Patriarch Pavle of Serbia (1914–2009) had been transferred to a clinical center due to his poor health, the Holy Synod of the SOC elected Radović to perform the duties of the Patriarch. Patriarch Pavle died on November 15, 2009, and Amfilohije continued his role as Guardian of the Throne. He ceased to perform that duty after the election of Bishop Irinej of Niš as the new Patriarch on January 22, 2010.
