Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Eparchy is an anglicized Greek word, authentically Latinized as eparchia and loosely translating as 'rule over something, ' like province, prefecture, or territory, to have the jurisdiction over, it has specific meanings both in politics, history and in the hierarchy of the Eastern Christian churches.Originally eparchy (, eparchia) was the Greek equivalent of the Latin term provincia, one of the districts of the Roman Empire at the third echelon. As such it was used, chiefly in the eastern parts of the Empire, to designate the Roman provinces. The term eparch (Greek: eparchos) however, designating an eparchy's governor, was most usually used to refer to the praetorian prefects (singular in Greek, "eparch of the praetorium") in charge of the Empire's praetorian prefectures, and to the Eparch of Constantinople, the city's urban prefect.
