A '''primate''' is the presiding [[bishop]] of an ecclesiastical jurisdiction or region. Usually, ''primate'' refers to the first hierarch of an [[autocephalous]] [[Orthodox Church]] or an [[autonomous]] Orthodox Church. Less often, it is used to refer to the ruling bishop of an [[archdiocese]] or [[diocese]].
