The Metropolitanate of Dabar-Bosnia (Serbian: Митрополија дабробосанска / Mitropolija dabrobosanska) is a metropolis of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Bosnia and Herzegovina, seated in Sarajevo. Since 2017, Metropolitan of Dabar and Bosnia is Hrizostom Jević.[1]

History

The medieval Eparchy of Dabar (Serbian: Дабарска епархија / Dabarska eparhija) was founded in 1219 by the first Serbian archbishop, Saint Sava. The seat of bishops of Dabar was in the Banja Monastery near Priboj. Eparchy of Dabar had jurisdiction over the region of lower Lim and middle Drina on the borders with medieval Bosnia.[2]

In 1557, Serbian Patriarchate of Peć was restored and the Eparchy of Dabar and Bosnia was returned to its jurisdiction, with its bishops of holding the honorary title of metropolitan.[3] In 1766, when the autocephalous Serbian Patriarchate of Peć was abolished, Eparchy of Dabar-Bosnia and all other Serbian eparchies under Ottoman rule came under the jurisdiction of Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. Bishop of Dabar-Bosnia kept his honorary title of metropolitan, as was also the custom in the Ecumenical Patriarchate. The seat of metropolitan was in Sarajevo.[4]

Since the 1878 campaign, territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina was under the rule of Austria-Hungary, but under the Convention of 1880 all Eastern Orthodox eparchies remained under ecclesiastical jurisdiction of Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. At the end of World War I in 1918, all Eastern Orthodox bishops in Bosnia and Herzegovina reached a unanimous decision to join with other Serbian ecclesiastical provinces into united Serbian Orthodox Church. The process of unification was completed in 1920 and since then Eparchy of Dabar-Bosnia remains part of the united Serbian Orthodox Church.[5]

From 2015 to 2017, the diocese was administered by Bishop Grigorije (Durić) of Zahumlje and Herzegovina.[6]
