Churchmen carried away in sedan? (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

deans

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'churchmen' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both people as well as being plural nouns.
Maybe they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'carried away in sedan?' is the wordplay.
'sedan' can be anagrammed to 'DEANS'.
Though, I'm not sure how this is indicated.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for deans that I've seen is " chief judges".)
