Bogomoljac ("God-Prayers") Movement

Popular revival movement within the Serbian Orthodox Church which began in the late XIX Century. It resembled the Greek Zoë Brotherhood and the Romanian Lord's Army, and like them has been accused of pietistic tendencies; nevertheless, it seems to have had the support of some of the leading figures in XX Century Serbian Orthodoxy, including St. Nikolai of Zica and St. Justin Popovic. The traditions of the Movement are today carried on by a number of organisations, including the Pravoslavna Narodna Hrishcanska Zajednitsa (PNHZ or Congregation of Orthodox Christian Peoples).
