'''''Cathedral''''' is the English term commonly used for [[church]]es that are the seat of a [[bishop]]'s see. The word cathedral comes from the Greek word καθέδρα (cathedra) or seat, referring to the bishop's chair, as head of the [[diocese]]. '''[[Sobor]]''' (собор) is the name generally used for the bishop's church within Slavic language countries. Cathedrals are often large buildings, usually [[basilica]]s.
