Episcopal Elections 250-600


Oxford University Press

Geographical organization and the claims to authority to which it gave rise are of clear relevance to the issue of elections, and the Nicene regulations on elections are intertwined with the question of regional jurisdiction. This chapter looks at the activities of the metropolitans within their provinces, focusing on how groups of provinces were managed, if at all. It argues that that the commonly-held view that the church modelled its own hierarchy on that of the empire is a description full of holes.

Keywords:   church hierarchy, geogrpahical organization, episcopal elections, Nicene regulations, metropolitans
