Canon 59

1. Patriarchs of Eastern Churches, even if some are of later

times, are all equal by reason of patriarchal dignity with due

regard for the precedence of honor among them. 2. The order of

precedence among the ancient patriarchal sees of the Eastern

Churches is that in the first place comes the see of Constantinople, after that Alexandria, then Antioch and Jerusalem. 3.

Among the other patriarchs of the Eastern Churches, precedence is

ordered according to the antiquity of the patriarchal see. 4.

Among the patriarchs of the Eastern Churches who each are of the

same title but who preside over different patriarchal Churches,

he has precedence who was first promoted to the patriarchal dignity.
