Cardinal electors arranged by orders and precedence

Catalogs Home Search

The College of Cardinals is divided into three different orders: bishops, priests and deacons. Pope Paul VI by his motu proprio Ad Purpuratorum Patrum, of February 11, 1965, stipulated that the patriarchs of Oriental rite incorporated to the College of Cardinals would belong to the order of bishops and rank below the bishops of titles of suburbicarian sees. The cardinal patriarchs retain their patriarchal sees and are not assigned any suburbicarian see. As of March 14, 2014, there are 119 cardinal electors. Within the orders of cardinal priests and deacons, their precedence is determined by the date of cardinalitial creation.
