  1. ecclesiastical province

    An ecclesiastical province is a geographical area that comprises several dioceses or church districts under the jurisdiction of a metropolitan archbishop in the Christian church.

These provinces serve administrative and organizational purposes within the church hierarchy.


  1. Ecclesiastical province

    An ecclesiastical province is a large jurisdiction of religious government, so named by analogy with the secular Roman province. In those hierarchical Christian churches that have dioceses, a province is a collection of those dioceses. The Roman Catholic Church, the Orthodox Churches and the Anglican Communion all have provinces. These provinces are led by an archbishop. In the early church and in some modern churches, a province's cathedral and the cathedral's city is called a metropolis and the province's bishop is called, in turn, a metropolitan bishop or a metropolitan.
