    • found: Encyc. of Ukraine:v. 5, p. 360-365 (Ukrainian Catholic Church (Ukrainska katolytska tserkva); the current name of the Ukrainian Catholic Church (UCC) that belongs to the group of Eastern or Byzantine rite churches in communion with the Roman Catholic Church and recognize the spiritual and administrative authority of the pope. These eastern churches are also called "particular" (pomisni), because they are hierarchically, canonically, liturgically, and culturally autonomous, although they belong to the association of particular churches that forms the Universal Church. The name "Ukrainian Catholic Church" has been used popularly and in official Vatican documents since the early 1960's to refer to all Ukrainian Catholics in the diaspora and the underground (until 1989) church in Ukraine. It replaced the term "Greek Catholic Church" which had been used since the 18th century, and the official term "Ecclesia Ruthena Unita" used by the Vatican. UCC leaders favored the new term because it recognized the national character of the church; prevented confusion that arose with such terms as "Greek Catholic, Ruthenus, or Ruthenian", and implied the spiritual and administrative unity of Ukrainian emigrants with the church in Ukraine (which had been outlawed since 1946). Not all Ukrainian Catholics outside Ukraine belong directly to the UCC); v. 1, p. 205-206 (article under Berestia, Church Union of: an agreement, proclaimed in 1596 between the Ruthenian (Ukrainian-Belorussian) Orthodox Church in Poland and Lithuania and the Holy See)
