According to [[Canon law|Church Law]], bishops of an area must meet in [[council]]s. When doing so, the metropolitan or patriarchate presides administratively.
==Male monastics only==
In the Orthodox Church, from about the sixth century, it has been the rule that bishops are single men or widowers. Bishops are also usually in at least the first degree of [[monastic]] orders.
