An archbishop, or metropolitan, is a bishop who governs a diocese strictly his own, while he presides at the same time over the bishops of a district composed of simple diocese. The archbishop's own diocese is the archdiocese. The several dioceses of the district form the archepiscopal, or metropolitan province.
