Prevention is an ecclesiastical term denoting the right of a superior dignitary of the Church to interfere in the business of his subordinate; but it is more specially the right of the pope, in the nomination to ecclesiastical offices, to pass over the proper collators and give away the benefices himself. The Gallican Church has never recognized this papal prerogative. SEE PROVISORS.
