Appointment may refer to:



  • Papal appointment, the oldest method for the selection of the pope
  • Appointment of Catholic bishops, in the Catholic Church is a complicated process
  • Appointment of Church of England bishops, follows a somewhat convoluted process, reflecting the church's traditional tendency towards compromise and ad hoc solutions, traditional ambiguity between hierarchy and democracy, and traditional role as a semi-autonomous state church. (Suffragan bishops are appointed through a much simpler process, reflecting their status as directly responsible to their diocesan bishop.)
