St. John Chrysostom
Archbishop of Constantinople (398—404)

In many denominations of the Christian religion, an archbishop ({{#invoke:IPAc-en|main}}, via Latin archiepiscopus, from Greek ἀρχιεπίσκοπος{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}, from ἀρχι{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}-, "chief", and ἐπίσκοπος{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}, "bishop")<ref>, .</ref><ref></ref><ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> is a bishop of higher rank or office. Like popes, patriarchs, metropolitans, cardinal bishops, diocesan bishops, suffragan bishops, etc., archbishops belong to the category of bishops, the highest of the three traditional orders of bishops, priests (presbyters), and deacons. One becomes an archbishop by being granted the title or by ordination as chief pastor of a metropolitan see or of another episcopal see to which the title of archbishop is attached.
