Re: muslim priest
The myths, rituals and hierarchies of the various branches of the Christian and other monotheistic churches are indeed complicated. However, they have little to do with this thread. Here we seem to have established that 'imam' is probably the word atabitaraf was looking for. Whether or not an imam is a 'priest' is perhaps not something that linguists can decide. That's something for popes, cardinals, patriarchs, metropolitans, archbishops, bishops, archdeacons, deacons, priests, clerics, vicars, canons, divines, rectors, rabbis, ecclesaisatics, imams, ayotollahs, mullahs, ministers, padres, pastors, chaplains, clergy, witch doctors, cobleighs et al .
