Looking for differences in religious administrative levels in different countries. Perhaps we can find a common used levelling. It looks like that for Phillipines and Germany there's no actual admin-level definition. In the catholic church the official defined basic structures are: diocese, deanery and parish - they should be the same in every country. Also the Ecclesiastic provinces should be known everywhere - and here's a potential misunderstanding in the naming: an Archdiocese is on the same level as a Diocese, but also nominates the Ecclesiastic province (primus inter pares)

Sorry, I've seen it too late: there's a discussion on Talk:Key:boundary#Religious authority boundaries. -- Joooo
