SEE (Lat. sedes, a seat), a seat or throne, particularly the throne of a bishop, the cathedra, the symbol of his office and dignity, the placing of which in a church makes it a cathedral. The term is thus applied to the place where the bishop's cathedral is situated and from which he properly takes his title, and so is to be distinguished from diocese(q.v.), the territorial province over which his jurisdiction extends (see Bishop).
