Patriarch
Head of the Coptic church. The word is a composite term originating from Latin and Greek words: pater (father) and archos (leader or chief). In the Coptic church the term signifies the head of the entire church organization with metropolitans, bishops, and priests under his church authority. In the earliest times the head of the church was the bishop of Alexandria, who came to be identified as Pappas, or Pope.
