The Dean of Leicester is the head (primus inter pares – first among equals) and chair of the chapter of canons, the ruling body of Leicester Cathedral. The dean and chapter are based at the Cathedral Church of Saint Martin in Leicester. Before 2000 the post was designated as a provost, which was then the equivalent of a dean at most English cathedrals. The cathedral is the mother church of the Diocese of Leicester and seat of the Bishop of Leicester. The current Dean is David Monteith
