Archbishop

From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

An archbishop is a bishop whose religious jurisdiction extends over a larger geographical area than that of most bishops. For example, the Catholic bishop of San Francisco is called an "archbishop" due to the size and significance of his jurisdiction.

Some archbishops have jurisdiction over entire nations. This includes Jean-Claude Hollerich who is in command of the Archdiocese of Luxembourg. [1] The region he administers is referred to as an archdiocese or province.
