'''Pope''' is a title of honor, meaning
''papa '' or ''father '' in Greek, given to the [[primate|primatial bishop]] of the [[Church of Alexandria]].
The title was also used historically by the pre-[[Great Schism|schism]] [[Church of Rome]] (and its modern
descendent, the [[Roman Catholic Church]]) and continues to be used by the [[Oriental Orthodox]] [[Church of Alexandria (Coptic)|Coptic Orthodox Church]]. The Eastern Orthodox Patriarch of Alexandria holds the title of Pope.
[[Old Believers]], [[Russian Orthodox Church|Russian]], [[Serbian Orthodox Church|Serbian]], [[Bulgarian Orthodox Church|Bulgarian]], [[Romanian Orthodox Church|Romanian]], [[Moldovan Orthodox Church|Malovan]], and [[Ukrainian Orthodox Church|Ukrainian]] Churches use the word ''pope'' as a synonym for ''priest'', though when addressing a priest they will usually call him ''
babushka'' ( ''father ''). However, depending on the speaker, this term might be one that is used derogatorily against the priest.
