One should also mention the Slavic practice of mitered archpriests -- this is an archpriest who may wear the miter, making him analagous to an archimandrite. The OCA dispensed with mitered archpriests some time ago, but Russia maintains the practice. --[[User:Fr Lev|Fr Lev]] 08:39, March 2, 2006 (CST)
