The Rt Revd Edward Holland is a retired Anglican Suffragan Bishop, who continues to serve as an honorary assistant bishop in the diocese of London to date and has particular experience and expertise on Anglicanism in mainland Europe.
The Suffragan Bishop of Gibraltar answers to the Diocesan Bishop of Gibraltar. Prior to 1980, most Anglicans in Europe were administered by the Bishop of Fulham, a Suffragan who answers to the Bishop of London. In 1980, the European ministries were separated, to allow the Bishop of Fulham to concentrate on matters in an increasingly up-market and influential district of London (and, latterly, on an entirely different form of 'Flying Bishop' duties), whilst the new 44th Diocese of the Church of England, the only one not actually in Britain, ministered to all of the increasing population of British expatriates and migrant workers on the Continent. The diocesan title appears to be tautologous, but indicates the bishop should have a See, with a cathedral, hence the reference to the British Dependent Territory of Gibraltar, with its Cathedral, whilst the second part clarifies that his duties extend beyond the territory. The bishop is Bishop in Europe, and not 'and of Europe' , because the United Kingdom, despite some work in that direction across the centuries, holds no jurisdiction over Europe.
