Professor Dragisa Bojovic, the director of the Center for Byzantine-Slavonic Studies of the University of Nis, said on Oct. 9 that the awarding of the Order of St. Sava to Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has as a consequence a “serious rift” among the leaders of the Serbian Orthodox Church.

“The only serious consequence is a rift among the church leaders on the issue,” Bojovic told BETA, adding that the matter is deepening the existing divisions.

He pointed out that the decoration has long lost the significance it had in the past, that it was degraded, and that no great importance should be ascribed to it any more, reiterating that the division among the highest clerics is a much more serious matter.
