                                 The Church and its worship
The Bishop’s Seat. This is usually found only in a Cathedral. Its Latin name cathedra is why a cathedral is so-called: it is the main church of a diocese in which the Bishop has his seat. In some places, the bishop’s seat is very grand and is known as the ‘bishop’s throne.’ In others, it is more simple. Some large parish churches may also have a special seat for the bishop.
