== Antiochian Metropolitans and Archbishops ==
Perhaps someone else can help me: in the Antiochian diary I have in front of me, it says that "Originally a Metropolitan was the Bishop of the capital of a province, while Archbishop was a more general title of honour given to Bishops of special eminence. The Church of Russia still generally uses these titles int he original way, but the Greek and Antioch [sic] Churches give the title Metropolitan to every Diocesan bishop and grant the title Archbishop to those who formerly would have been styled Metropolitans." I'm aware of the practise in the American Archdiocese; however, is this normative outside of North America? — by [[User:Pistevo|<font color="green">Pιs</font><font color="gold">τévο</font>]] <sup>''[[User talk:Pistevo|<font color="blue">talk</font>]]'' ''[[User talk:Pistevo/dev/null|<font color="red">complaints</font>]]''</sup> at 02:21, May 31, 2008 (UTC)
