The bishop has no restrictions in distance for each move, but is limited to diagonal movement.Bishops, like all other pieces except the knight, cannot jump over other Norwegian "Løper", in Danish "Løber", in Swedish "Löpare", in German "Läufer" and in Dutch "loper"; in Finnish, the word is "lähetti", and in Polish, "goniec", both with the same meaning).In Romanian, it is known as "nebun" which refers to a crazy person (similarly to the French name "Fou" (fool) which is most likely derived from "Fou du roi", a jester). Interestingly, the use of the term in Icelandic predates that of the English language, as the first mentioning of "biskup" in Icelandic texts dates back to the early part of the 14th century, while the 12th-century Lewis Chessmen portray the bishop as an unambiguously ecclesiastical figure.

A rook is generally worth about two pawns more than a bishop (see Chess piece relative value and the exchange).

In The Saga of Earl Mágus, which was written in Iceland somewhere between 1300–1325, it is described how an emperor was checkmated by a bishop.

This has led to some speculations as to the origin of the English use of the term "bishop".

Less experienced players tend to underrate the bishop compared to the knight because the knight can reach all squares and is more adept at forking.

More experienced players understand the power of the bishop (Mednis 1990:2).In these situations, the bishop is said to be "dominating" the knight. Conversely, a bishop which is impeded by friendly pawns is often referred to as a "bad bishop" (or sometimes, disparagingly, a "tall pawn").
