 Metropolitan bishop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In hierarchical Christian churches, the rank of metropolitan bishop, or simply metropolitan, pertains to the diocesan bishop or archbishop (then more precisely called Metropolitan archbishop) of a metropolis; that is, the chief city of an old Roman province, ecclesiastical province, or regional capital.
Metropolitans also have authority over the dioceses in their province when there is a vacancy caused by the death or resignation of the suffragan bishop and they preside at the installation of new bishops.
In the Anglican Communion, the metropolitan is generally the head of an ecclesiastical province (or cluster of dioceses) and ranks immediately under the Primate of the national church.
