His Holines '''Kalinik I of Pec''' or Calinicus I ('''Калиник I патријарх пећки''') was Patriarch of Pec from 1693 to 1710.
He was the first [[patriarch]] of Pec who was Greek. Kalinik became patriarch in the spring of 1693 with help of his cousin Alexandros Maurocordates, who was a high Turkish official. Kalinik also was the first patriarch who was not elected by the [[Holy Synod|Synod]], which has been the reason why almost all Serbian [[hierarch]]s have for many years refused to recognised him as a patriarch. The last hierarch to recognize him was Metropolitan of Cetinje Danilo Petrović Njegoš. Although Calinicus Kalinik was a phanriot he has maintained a good reputation in the history of Serbian church. Kalinik granted autonomy to Metropolitanate of Karlovci in the ''Synodical letter'' of [[May 18]], 1710.
As patriarch, Kalinik was very successful in his struggles with Roman proselytism. This was reason for the hatred that Bosnian Franciscans and the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Bar felt for him. Patr. Kalinik suffered a lot under the Turks. He died on [[August 16]], 1710 in Temišvar.
