CathedralFrom the Latin micro-phrase Domus Dei (House of God) or Domus Ecclesiae. It is a city’s main church. It is not the main church (cattedrale in Italian), in so far as it is not the only official headquarters of the bishop of the dioceses.

From cathedra (pulpit) a Latin term of Greek origin, indicating the bishop’s seat, during medieval times the semantic field was extended to indicate the church where the bishop officiated.  The basilical layout may be a Latin or Greek cross. In general the church is larger and is always the most important and only one in the dioceses.
