From 1717 to 1739, Belgrade was a military, administrative and judicial centre of the Habsburgs in the part of the territory conquered in the war against the Ottoman Empire. At the same time, it was a religious and political centre of Serbs in the region. It was the seat of the Orthodox eparchy – from 1718 it was the seat of the newly established Belgrade Metropolitanate, and from 1731 of the united Belgrade–Karlovci Metropolitanate. Metropolitans Mojsije Petrović and Vićentije Jovanović convened in Belgrade numerous meetings and counsels with representatives of the people and clergy. In 1722, the only known National–Church Council of the Belgrade Metropolitanate was eld there. During the Habsburg rule, owing to metropolitans’ endeavours, important buildings were built in Belgrade, which the town did not have, such as the Cathedral Church and the new metropolitanate residence (court)
