A history and description of the "diocese of Polynesia [which is] unchallengeably the biggest diocese in area in the world, eleven million square miles of it, though often described as mainly 'wind and water'. .... There are two Polynesias. One is the ethnographic division of the Pacific. The other, not just the same, is the diocese of Polynesia, somewhat misnamed, for its See centre is in Melanesian Fiji, though the bulk of its area is in Polynesia". -- p. 5, 7.
