Primate (religion) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1331 words)
Primates in the Anglican Communion are generally chosen by election (either by a Synod consisting of laity, clergy, and bishops, or by a House of Bishops).
In the Church of England, the Primate is appointed by the sovereign, in his or her capacity as Supreme Governor of the established church, on the advice of the Crown Appointments Commission.
In the Western Church, a Primate is an archbishop (or rarely a suffragan or exempt bishop) of a see (called a primas) which confers precedence over the other bishops of his own province, or over a number of provinces (possibly part of a province), such as a 'national' church in (historical) political/cultural terms.
