This court, which subsisted in England before the time of Henry II, is a court of appeal, belonging to the archbishop of Canterbury; the judge is called the dean of arches, because he anciently held his court in the church of St. Mary-le-bow (Sancta Maria de Arcubus). The spiritual courts are now held at Doctors' Commons.
