'''The ROCOR and the OCA''' have a complicated history of cooperation, rivalry, and sometimes outright hostility. These two [[jurisdiction]]s, the [[Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia]] (ROCOR) and the [[Orthodox Church in America]] (OCA), both have their origins in the [[Church of Russia]] (a.k.a. the ''Moscow Patriarchate'' or ''MP''), and their histories as clearly identifiable entities both stem from the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in the early 20th century.
