Let $\mathbf C$ be a metacategory.

Let $C$ be an object of $\mathbf C$.


The category of subobjects of $C$, denoted $\mathbf{Sub}_{\mathbf C} \left({C}\right)$, is defined as follows:

Objects:         Subobjects $m: B \to C$ of $C$
Morphisms: Morphisms $f: \operatorname{dom} m \to \operatorname{dom} m'$ of $\mathbf C$ such that $m' \circ f = m$ in $\mathbf C$
Composition: Inherited from $\mathbf C$
Identity morphisms: $\operatorname{id}_m := \operatorname{id}_{\operatorname{dom} m}$, the identity morphism in $\mathbf C$ of the domain of $m$


The behaviour of the morphisms is shown in the following commutative diagram in $\mathbf C$:

$\begin{xy}\[email protected]+1em{ B \ar[r]^*+{f} \ar[rd]_*+{m} & B' \ar[d]^*+{m'} \\ & C }\end{xy}$
