In "Archbishops of archdioceses" section, cardinal has no direct relationship with archbishop, as cardinal can be honoured virtually to all men with at least the order of the presbyterate (priest) by Pope [Cannon Law S.251]. So, I suggest to remove the description regarding cardinal in this section. ppa (talk) 22:37, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
The reference to "archbishops" outranking metropolitans in the Greek Orthodox Church is not precise. Only the President of the Holy Synod, the Bishop of Athens is called the Archbishop, and he is first among equals.
He or she / She or He
EdwinHJ has several times reverted or changed the page to read "She or he". This makes no sense to me. Since the vast majority of Archbishops are male (especially historically), it would seem to me to make much more sense to state it as 'He or she'. Does anyone disagree with this, and if so why?

Actually, proper English is to only use "he" even when referring to both men and women. It is called the generic masculine. "He/She" actually means a person who is both male and female. So, to answer your question, yes, it should just be he, not because the majority of archbishops are men, but because it is proper English.
