ARCHPRIEST

ARCHPRIEST. Initially the senior presbyter, without any specific authority; with the growth of the presbyterium his function became that of head of the presbyters, and he filled in for the bishop in ordinary pastoral activities when the latter was absent whereas the archdeacon filled in for administrative and financial matters. There was one archpriest for every local church: “Every church has one bishop, one archpriest, one archdeacon” Jerome, Ep. 125,15. In Merovingian Gaul, however, there were the archipresbyteri vicari of the village see Council of Tours, 567, can. 20, priests in charge of parishes with other clergy.
