Canon 984

1. Besides the Roman Pontiff, a hierarch is understood to mean,

first of all, a patriarch, a major archbishop, a metropolitan who

presides over a Church sui iuris, and an eparchial bishop, as

well as one who for a time succeed these in governance in accordance with the law. 2. Besides the Roman Pontiff, local hierarchs are the eparchial bishop, the exarch, the apostolic administrator, as well as those who for a time legitimately succeed

them in governance in their absence, also the protosyncellus and

the syncellus; however, the patriarch, the major archbishop, the

metropolitan who is head of a Church sui iuris, as well as those

who for a time succeed them in governance in accordance with the

law, are local hierarchs only with regard to the eparchy which

they govern, with due regard for can. 101. 3. Major superiors

in institutes of consecrated life, who have ordinary power of

governance, are also hierarchs, but they are not local hierarchs.
