  Episcopal see - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An episcopal see is the office of the chief bishop of a particular church.
See comes from the Latin word sedes, meaning seat, which refers to the episcopal throne (cathedra) located in the bishop's church (cathedral) in which the bishop sits as the principal symbol of his office.
By extension, episcopal see also refers to the local ordinary jurisdiction of that chief bishop (the diocese or particular church) and also the governmental bodies assisting the bishop (such as the curia).
