Titular see

A titular see in various churches is an episcopal see of a former diocese that no longer functions, sometimes called a "dead diocese". The ordinary or hierarch of such a see may be styled a "titular metropolitan", "titular archbishop" or "titular bishop", which goes by the status conferred on the titular see; the term is used to signify a diocese that no longer functionally exists because the diocese once flourished but the territory was conquered by Muslims or no longer functions because of a schism. The Greek–Turkish population exchange of 1923 contributed to titular bishoprics; the see of Maximianoupolis along with the town that shared its name was destroyed by the Bulgarians under Emperor Kaloyan in 1207. Parthenia, in north Africa, was swallowed by desert sand. During the Muslim conquests of the Middle East and North Africa, some bishops fled to Christian-ruled areas. If they did not return and the Christian population of their dioceses dispersed or adopted Islam, they are seen as bishops of those dioceses, who could give rise after long interruption, to a'restored' line of apostolic succession on each see.

The Ordinary or hierarch of a Catholic titular see may be styled a "Titular Metropolitan", "Titular Archbishop" or "Titular bishop", which goes by the status conferred on the titular see, but exceptions ad hoc are being made, either above or below the titular see's rank, while titular sees have been promoted and/or demoted. Exceptionally, a pre-diocesan jurisdiction can be maintained in titular form, as with two Egyptian titular apostolic vicariates, Heliopolis of Egypt and Port-Said. Both have—without a single proper incumbent—been united on November 30, 1987, with Egypt's present only Latin Ordinary, whose full title thus became Apostolic Vicariate of Alexandria of Egypt–Heliopolis of Egypt–Port-Said. After a name change, an abandoned name may be'restored' as a titular see though a residential successor see exist. Furthermore, the Catholic church may create more than one titular see named after a single city, by creating one or more lines of apostolic succession assigned to the Latin and/or one or more Eastern Catholic rites, which are not of the same rank.

The term in partibus infidelium shortened to in partibus or i.p.i. Meaning "in the lands of the unbelievers", was added to the name of the see conferred on titular Latin Church bishops; when bishops fled from invading Muslims, they were welcomed by other churches, while preserving their titles and their rights to their own dioceses. They were entrusted with the administration of vacant sees of other dioceses. In days it was deemed fitting to preserve the memory of ancient Christian churches that had fallen into the hands of Muslims; these bishops do not reside in the sees whose titles they bear, cannot exercise any power over them, are not entrusted with their care. They are therefore called titular bishops, as opposed to diocesan bishops, the sees themselves are called titular sees, as opposed to residential sees. According to Auguste Boudinhon, in Catholic Encyclopedia, Prospero Fagnani said that the regular appointment of titular bishops dates back to the time of the Fifth Lateran Council, in 1514.

Pope Pius V extended the privilege to the sees. Since the practice has become more widespread. Although the normal constitution of the hierarchy has always been built on the idea of local jurisdiction of the bishops, there are indications, in the early history of the Church, of many who did not enjoy what is called ordinary jurisdiction. Besides those who were endowed with the episcopal character, in order to assist the local bishops there were those, driven from their dioceses by infidels or by heretics, or who for other reasons could not reside in the places to which they had been appointed; the spread of Islam through Muslim conquests in Asia and Africa was responsible for hundreds of abandoned sees. During the Crusades, the Latins, who established new Christian communities, composed of Europeans and belonging to the Latin Rite, procured the erection of new dioceses for their benefit, these in turn, during the growth of the Ottoman Empire, increased the number of abandoned sees; the final development of the list of sees, called in partibus infidelium, took shape, at first, from the attempt of the Holy See to keep up the succession of bishops in these dioceses, in the hope of reconquering their territory from the infidel.

When all hope of such redemption was given up, these titles were still conferred on those who were chosen to assist the diocesan bishops in their labors. After the 14th century the large increase of population in the great centers rendered such assistance necessary. In the 16th century the Holy See inaugurated the policy of consecrating nuncios and other prelates, delegated to represent the Pope in his relations with the different nations, so that they would be equals with the diocesan bishops of the countries in which they were ambassadors; the foundation of the Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith, in 1622, gave a great impetus to the missionary work of the Church in China and Japan, elsewhere a great increase in the number of bishops became
