Enthronistic Letters

were letters anciently addressed by newly installed bishops to foreign bishops, announcing their promotion to the episcopal office, and giving an account of their faith and orthodoxy. They received in return letters of peace and Christian fellowship. A failure to send such messages was regarded as an indication of a withdrawal from communion withi the rest of the Christian world.
