A metropolis is an ecclesiastical province that has as its primate a Metropolitan bishop. These provinces were traditionally a city or metropolis but have also been applied to larger areas such as regions or countries.

In the Eastern Orthodox churches, a metropolis is a type of diocese along with an eparchy, exarchate and an archdiocese. [1]
