Piggy-backing onto Meg's query, has anyone any good suggestions for how to translate 'preposito'? It's the term used for the head priest of a 'prepositura', and as I understand it that's a clerical community in a privately-founded institution. I've been using 'provost' but am open to better suggestions.

Yes, "Provost" is the standard translation of 'praepositus'.
