==Peculiar prerogatives of the patriarchate==
:''Main article: [[Prerogatives of the Ecumenical Patriarchate]]''
In history and in [[canons (law)|canonical literature]] (i.e. the Church's canons and traditional commentaries on them), the Ecumenical Patriarchate has been granted certain prerogatives (''[[presbeia]]'') which other autocephalous Orthodox churches do not have.

The nature of these prerogatives or even their very existence is hotly contested on [[Prerogatives_of_the_Ecumenical_PatriarchatePrerogatives of the Ecumenical Patriarchate#Canonical_claimsCanonical claims|canonical grounds]] by certain other Orthodox churches, particularly the [[Church of Russia]].
