Cardinal[edit]

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)

John Ireland[edit]

Would John Ireland(archbishop) be noteable enough to add to this list? If so, what would be his archdiocese? --69.5.156.155 08:33, 7 Sep 2004 (UTC)

The current list of notable archbishops is bound to be absurdly POV. There are literally hundreds of notable archbishops. john k 20:26, 21 Feb 2005 (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[edit]

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? Kenj0418 04:08, May 7, 2005 (UTC)

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.

Archbishop's Palace[edit]

Am I correct in thinking that the seat of an Archbishop is called an Archbishop's Palace? See sentence top of Archbishop's Palace.--User:Brenont (talk) 00:45, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Bishopric[edit]

Any place to use the word bishopric in this Article? - redirects to diocese?--User:Brenont (talk) 00:47, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
