'''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.

However, depending on the speaker, this term might be one that is used derogatorily against the priest.
