The Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church

Arranged by orders and precedence


The College of Cardinals is divided into three different orders: bishops, priests and deacons. Pope Paul VI by his motu proprio Ad Purpuratorum Patrum, of February 11, 1965, stipulated that the patriarchs of Oriental rite incorporated to the College of Cardinals would belong to the order of bishops and rank below the bishops of titles of suburbicarian sees. The cardinal patriarchs retain their patriarchal sees and are not assigned any suburbicarian see. As of August 5, 2017, there are 218 cardinals. Within the orders of cardinal priests and deacons, their precedence is determined by the date of cardinalitial creation.
