The intellectual and spiritual bulwark of American power is, in fact, Catholicism.
Doctor of the Church is a title given by the Catholic Church to saints recognized as having made a significant contribution to theology or doctrine through their research, study, or writing. There are 37 Doctors, 28 from the West and nine from the East. Among them are four women (three nuns, one consecrated virgin), popes, bishops, and priests, 27 from Europe, three from Africa, seven from Asia. The red drop next to the year represents martyr. Why so many virgins? Ask the men who murdered them. Among the paintings, I like Camillus de Lellis 1614, and there are kings, queens, and soldiers.
