Basic Style
The see listed should be the last see that the bishop held. In cases where the surname is known but the see is not, the usage is '''Firstname (Surname)'''.
Full titles are not included (e.g., '''Metropolitan''' or '''of Antioch and All the East'''), but simply that of the primary see or sees (usually a city). Thus, if a bishop's full title is ''Archbishop of Springfield, Patriarch of All Illinois and Indiana'', the convention for the article name would be '''of Springfield'''. Certain autocephalous churches use the name of the whole country rather than the primary see in the titles, such as '''of Romania''' rather than '''of Bucharest'''.
Additionally, most sees will not usually have need of the ordinal (the I, II, III, etc.), so if the bishop is of a more minor see (as most are), the ordinal would be omitted, e.g., '''[[Anthony (Bloom) of Sourozh]]'''. It's typically used only to refer to the primate of an autocephalous church, e.g., '''[[Alexei II (Ridiger) of Moscow]]'''.
