The problems of church unity and canonical autocephaly are of great importance in modern social and religious life and Inter-Orthodox relations. Attempts to resolve these tasks in our days invariably turn into confrontation and overly politicization. To overcome competently the existing differences in the Orthodox world on the subject of allowing autocephaly it is necessary to follow positive examples from the church history. In this context there is a great interest in the position of an outstanding Church historian and divine of the 19th century, rector of the Moscow Theological Academy archpriest Alexander Gorsky. This paper analyses his views on the nature of the Bulgarian Greek Church conflict and the ways of its overcoming, reflected in the homilies, addressed to the students of the divine school, the future Church pastors.
