Patriarch of Jerusalem
The term Patriarch of Jerusalem
can mean either the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem
, who is one of the Roman Catholic
"patriarchs of the east", or the Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem
, who is one of nine highest-ranking Eastern Orthodox
bishops, called patriarchs.
Both trace their successions back to James the Just, brother of Jesus Christ, who was head of the first Christian Church in Jerusalem.
