His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI (born 1927)
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso (born 1935)
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso (born 1935)

His Holiness is the official style or manner of address in reference to the leaders of certain religious groups. In the Catholic Church, including the Eastern Catholic Churches, the style is used when referring to the Pope. It is also used in reference to some patriarchs of Eastern Orthodoxy. In Tibetan Buddhism, the Dalai Lama is also addressed in the same manner in English, as are other Buddhist leaders such as Sakya Trizin, the Patriarch of Sakyapa. Adherents of Kemetic Orthodoxy use the term "Her Holiness" for their leader. Also, the leader of Raëlism, Raël, styles himself "His Holiness" as the Raelist prophet.

Usage

In Catholicism, the style derives from the Latin Sanctitas. It was originally used for all bishops, but from the 7th century on, it was only used for patriarchs and some secular rulers, and from the 14th century on its use has been restricted to the Pope. In a Ismaili sect of Islam, the title is held by Dr. Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin.
