I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like.
What we do. Every page goes through several hundred of perfecting techniques; in live mode. Quite the same Wikipedia. Just better.

Metropolis (religious jurisdiction)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A metropolis religious jurisdiction, or a metropolitan archdiocese, is an episcopal see whose bishop is the metropolitan bishop of an ecclesiastical province. Metropolises, historically, have been important cities in their provinces.

Eastern Orthodox

In the Eastern Orthodox Churches, a Metropolis (also called Metropolia or Metropolitanate) is a type of diocese, along with eparchies, exarchates and archdioceses.

In the churches of Greek Orthodoxy, every diocese is a Metropolis, headed by a Metropolitan while auxiliary bishops are the only non-metropolitan bishops.

In non-Greek Orthodox churches, mainly Slavic Orthodox, the title of Metropolitan is given to the heads of autocephalous Churches or of a few important episcopal sees.[1]

In the Eastern Catholic Churches, a metropolitanate is an autonomous Church of a lower category than the patriarchal and the major archiepiscopal Churches and is headed by a single Metropolitan of a fixed episcopal see.[2][3]

Western Catholic Church

In the Latin Church, or Western Church, of the Catholic Church, a metropolitan see is the chief episcopal see of an ecclesiastical province. Its Ordinary is a metropolitan archbishop and the see itself is an archdiocese. It has at least one suffragan diocese.

There are very few suffragan sees that have the rank of archdiocese, such as the Archdiocese of Avignon that is a suffragan of the Archdiocese of Marseille.[4] Other non-metropolitan archdioceses are directly subject to the Holy See and are merely "aggregated" to an ecclesiastical province, without being part of it.
