Middle English (as an adjective, the noun being short for cathedral church 'the church which contains the bishop's throne'): from late Latin cathedralis, from Latin cathedra 'seat', from Greek kathedra.

  • First used in the term cathedral church, a church containing the bishop's throne, cathedral comes from the Latin word for a seat or throne, cathedra, which is also the source of chair (Middle English). The term ex cathedra, meaning ‘with the full authority of office’, is a reference to the authority of the pope; its literal meaning in Latin is ‘from the chair’.
