Kalinik I Skopljanac (Serbian Cyrillic: Калиник I Скопљанац) was the Patriarch of Peć from 1691 until 1710. He became the spiritual leader of the Serbian Orthodox Church in difficult circumstances, following the exodus of the Serbs to the Kingdom of Hungary (which was under the Habsburg Monarchy), in the First Great Migration of the Serbs, under the leadership of his predecessor Arsenije III Čarnojević. He managed to maintain the existence and independence of the Patriarchate of Peć within the Ottoman Empire, despite the difficult position of the remaining Serbs, who had not fled north.
