Apostolic Vicar
An apostolic vicariate is a form of territorial jurisdiction of the Roman Catholic Church

centered in missionary regions and countries where a diocese has not yet been established. It is essentially provisional, though it may last for a century or more. The hope is that the region will generate sufficient numbers of Catholics for the Church to create a diocese. In turn, the status of Apostolic vicariate is often a promotion for a former apostolic prefecture, while either may have started out as a mission sui iuris.Contents1 Institution 2 List2.1 Current Apostolic vicariates2.1.1 Africa 2.1.2 The Americas 2.1.3 Asia 2.1.4 Europe2.2 Historical Apostolic vicariates2.2.1 Africa 2.2.2 The Americas 2.2.3 Asia 2.2.4 Europe 2.2.5 Oceania3 See also 4 References 5 External linksInstitution[edit] An apostolic vicariate is led by a vicar apostolic who is usually a titular bishop

Grave
steles were often used for funerary or commemorative purposes. Stelae as slabs of stone would also be used as ancient Greek and Roman government notices or as boundary markers to mark borders or property lines. The surface of the stele usually has text, ornamentation, or both. The ornamentation may be inscribed, carved in relief, or painted. Traditional Western gravestones may technically be considered the modern equivalent of ancient stelae, though the term is very rarely applied in this way
