Post war life of the Patriarchate of Pec
LIFE UNDER THE CONSTANT THREAT
After the Kosovo war in 1999 the Patriarchate of Pec is constantly exposed to the threat of Albanian extremists who have destroeyd more than 100 Serb Orthodox shrines in the Province after the war. At the moment the Convent is under strong Italian millitary protection. To understand how serious the threat is it is important to remember that the Albanian nationalists burned the largest dormitory of the Patriarchate monastery in 1981 in order to uproot the most important spiritual center of the Orthodox Christianity in this region. Monasteries and churches under constant military protection are the best picture how free the post war Kosovo is and where it is heading to. While dozens of new Saudi Arabian sponsored mosques rise in the surrounding Serb Orthodox churches disappear under the terror of Kosovo "talibans".
