Territorial Prelature

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A territorial or area prelature(Latin praelatura territorialisbefore the CIC 1983 also praelatura nullius dioeceseos) is a particular church of the Roman Catholic Church, equal to the diocese, with territorially circumscribed scope according to can. 368 CIC.

They are most common in South America and Italy, but are also found in Scandinavia and Asia. They are presided over by a prelate who, however, exercises the full jurisdiction of a diocesan bishop in the territory. Often, however, this prelate has received episcopal ordination and is therefore a titular bishop. In France, the village of Pontigny was elevated to a territorial prelature in order to incardinate the priests of the Mission de France.
