Primus

The title given to the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church in Scotland. Elected by the college of bishops and addressed as “Most Reverend,” he is nevertheless not given metropolitical powers. His function resembles that of the moderator of the general assembly of the Church of Scotland—i.e., he presides at his church's meetings-but unlike his Presbyterian counterpart he is not elected for one year only. The office is not attached to any one diocese.
