      Budapest Cathedral of the Assumption remains under the Moscow
      Patriarchate

      Budapest, August 26, Interfax - The Supreme Court of the Hungarian
      Republic ruled that the Budapest Cathedral of the Assumption claimed
      by the Patriarchate of Constantinople would stay under the
      jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church.

      The case was taken to court in 2001 by the Patriarchate of
      Constantinople with the aim to transfer the Cathedral of the
      Assumption to the jurisdiction of the Hungarian Exarchate established
      by Constantinople in 1995. However, the plaintiff did not manage to
      produce the required documents, the official site of the Russian
      Church reports Friday.

      The Cathedral of the Assumption was built at the end of the 15th
      century and belonged to the jurisdiction of the Serbian bishop of
      Buda till the mid-20th century. On the repeated requests of the
      parishioners the church moved to the Moscow Patriarchate jurisdiction
      in 1950 as the cathedral church by the decision of the church
      authorities, and now this status will be preserved by the decision of
      the secular authorities of Hungary.
