'''Pope''' is a title of honor, meaning "papa" or "father" in Greek, given to the [[primate|primatial bishop]] of the [[Church of Alexandria (Coptic)]].
The title was also used historically by the pre-[[Great Schism|schism]] [[Church of Rome]] (and its modern descendant, 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'', but often uses [[Patriarch]].
