A '''crosier''' (also known as a '''crozier''', '''paterissa''', '''pastoral staff''', or '''bishop's staff''')<ref>{{cite EB1911 |wstitle=Crozier |volume=7 |page=520}}</ref> is a stylized staff carried by high-ranking [[Roman Catholic]], [[Eastern Catholic]], [[Eastern Orthodox]], [[Oriental Orthodox]], [[Anglican]], and some [[Lutheran]], [[United Methodist Church|United Methodist]] and [[Pentecostal]] [[prelates]]. Other typical insignia of many of these prelates are the [[mitre]], the [[pectoral cross]], and the [[episcopal ring]]. A crosier staff is a part of the tradition of [[Jewish Christianity]].
