The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Esztergom-Budapest (Latin: Archidioecesis Strigoniensis–Budapestinensis) is the primatial see of the Roman Catholic Church in Hungary and the Metropolitan of one of its four Latin rite ecclesiastical provinces.

The Metropolitan archbishopric retains the title of Primate, which gives this see precedence over all other Hungarian dioceses, including the fellow Metropolitan Archbishops of Eger, Hajdúdorog (cfr. infra, Byzantine rite archeparchy), Kalocsa–Kecskemét and Veszprém, but the incumbent may be individually (adn temporarily) outranked if one of them holds a (higher) cardinalate. Its current Archbishop is Péter Erdő.

Duality and special churches[edit]

Its double name reflects that it has (co-)cathedral sees in two major Hungarian cities, the old primatial archiepiscopal seat Esztergom and the present national capital Budapest. These two prominent cities fall under the tutelage of one archdiocese due to Hungary's early history wherein Esztergom was one of the former capitals of the Kingdom of Hungary (much larger than the present republic – roughly the eastern half of the Habsburg empire).

The archiepiscopal Cathedral and primatial see is : Nagyboldogasszony és Szent Adalbert főszékesegyház Nagyboldogasszony és Szent Adalbert főszékesegyház, in Esztergom-Vár.

The Co-Cathedral, a Minor Basilica and World Heritage Site, is Szent István király bazilika társszékesegyház, in Budapest-Szentistvánváros

The archdiocese has a second Minor Basilica: Kisboldogasszony-templom Kisboldogasszony-templom, Máriaremete, at Székesfehérvár, in Fejér.

Statistics[edit]

As per 2014, it pastorally served 1,253,000 Catholics (60.1% of 2,086,000 total) on 1,543 km² in 153 parishes and 28 missions with 435 priests (254 diocesan, 181 religious), 23 deacons, 725 lay religious (266 brothers, 459 sisters) and 38 seminarians.

Ecclesiastical province[edit]

The Metropolitan's suffragan sees are the Latin Bishops of:


The former Roman Catholic Diocese of Hajdúdorog, until then also its suffragan, was elevated in 2015 to Hungarian Greek Catholic Archeparchy of Hajdúdorog (Eastern Catholic archdiocese), now the Metropolitan (with two suffragans in his own province) in chief of the Hungarian Greek Catholic Church, of Byzantine Rite.
