Vedeks were established members within Bajoran religion, ranked above a ranjen.(citation needededit). Some of them were elected to sit in the Vedek Assembly.(citation needededit)

In late 2369, Vedek Bareil Antos told Commander Benjamin Sisko that he was tired of listening to all 112 vedeks for hours. (DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets")

The vedeks of the Janalan order chanted continuously for the health and well-being of their fellow Bajorans. (TNG: "Lower Decks")

The position of vedek appears to have been similar to the rank of cardinal within the Roman Catholic Church. Unlike cardinals, a vedek was not expected to be celibate. Louise Fletcher, who portrayed Vedek Winn Adami, once commented, "I guess [it] is like a Bishop or an Archbishop." (Star Trek Monthly issue 34,  p. 50)
