What is a Cathedral and Why We Have Them?

The word Cathedral comes from the Latin word cathedra meaning “chair”. For the Church, the Bishop’s official Chair is located in what we called a Cathedral.

The word Bishop comes from the Greek episkopos meaning “over” “seeing”. Translated:

  • bishop,
  • overseer,
  • superintendent,
  • supervisor,
  • the first,
  • leader, or
  • foreman.
