HISTORY of Christian Theology

derived from the Greek term epi-scopos, which literally means “overseer” or “supervisor,” but is translated as “bishop,” and refers to the office and elevated role of the bishop in the Roman Catholic and Church of England and some Lutheran traditions that arose from the “monarchical episcopate” that evolved in the 2nd and 3rd centuries where the Church in each city was governed by only one bishop who directed the presbyters (elders or priests). This polity was rejected by reformed Protestants.
