Style[edit]

Canon 3 of the Canons of the Scottish Episcopal Church states that the style and title of the Primus is of the form:

"The Most Reverend _________ Bishop of __________, Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church"


Just Curious[edit]

I'm assuming that the position of Primus resembles that of an archbishop in some ways. Is there a reason why the Scottish church has no archbishop as such? Cranston Lamont (talk) 03:41, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

The Primus is first amonst equals without metorpolitian jurasdicition. Hence the reason why (s)he is not an Archbishop. The section - History of the Primus - identifies that Archbishop Ross was the last Archbishop and head of the SEC. The next head of the SEC - Bishop Fullerton - had different responsibilities and was styled as Primus. --Stewart (talk) 09:17, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Arthur Millar[edit]

Haydn's Book of Dignities says that Arthur Millar became Bishop of Edinburgh and Primus in 1727, in succession to Fullarton. He died the same year, and was succeeded in both positions by Lumsden. Does this contradict the other sources used? Opera hat (talk) 10:31, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Plural form[edit]

There is presently the Category:Primuses of the Scottish Episcopal Church - but shouldn't the plural be Primi, as adjectives also take plural forms in Latin? Opera hat (talk) 11:40, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Lumsden link[edit]

The link from Andrew Lumsden is to the present day Andrew Lumsden, an Organist and Master of the Choristers and innappropriate to Bishop Andrew Lumsden. Marghek (talk) 09:19, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Your right. I've corrected the link. Scrivener-uki (talk) 15:19, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
