What's the phrase 'universal priests' (presbyteri catholici) supposed to mean? Priests who are catholic in their tastes & sensibilities? They love both Beethoven & Green Day? Both Michelangelo & Pollock? Both claret & chianti? Both fascism & communism? IacobusAmor 13:58, 19 Decembris 2010 (UTC)[reply]
'Catholic' originally was supposed to refer to 'universal' Christianity. Even in early Christianity, fierce debates were going on between the different Christian schools/factions, like today's Protestant -Catholic rivalry. The 'Catholic group' was supposed to be the united coalition of these groups.Today of course, it refers to the Institution based at the Vatican.--Jondel 11:19, 20 Decembris 2010 (UTC)[reply]
That's why it has to be capitalized: lowercasing it (as the prior comment indicated) makes the priests universal, not representatives of a nonuniversal entity, the Roman branch of Christianity. IacobusAmor 14:52, 20 Decembris 2010 (UTC)[reply]
That's a nice name for it :) Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 14:43, 20 Decembris 2010 (UTC)[reply]
