Vicar of the Holy See

Vicar Of The Holy See is an officer who has been from time to time appointed by the pope to exercise quasi-episcopal jurisdiction in certain dioceses. His functions and duties are almost precisely the same as those of the vicar apostolic (q.v.). Vicars of the Holy See were first appointed in Gaul by pope Zosimus in 417.
