What uses, outside of the modern (Sethian) satanic church, are there of the title "magistra"?
Also, does this title have valid historical roots of any sort beyond its literal latin meaning?
Following up to my post yesterday regarding the use of the title of magistra in satanic and Sethian churches, I have the following questions:
If, in rare instance, you had a very bright, gay, male teen (around 16) who became a magister of such a church, through his own appointment or otherwise, and he wanted for effect to use the female title of magistra, could he?
In addition, does anyone know much about the so-called higher doctorates beyond the Ph.D.? I know that (aside from professional doctorates such as the M.D. and D.V.M.) there are higher earned degrees than a Ph.D. traditionally in the European systems, such as the French doctorate d'état and some German degrees.
I'm writing an, um, novel (swallow), so I have soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many, many, many, many questions. I guess I'll start with this one:
What words or phrases might devout Jews substitute for such typical American English interjections as, "Holy [whatever]!" or "G-d damn it!" or "Dammit!" or "Hell!" or "Heavens!" or "Jesus Christ!" or "Jeez!" ... and so on? I presume exclamations such as, "By HaShem!", while arguably avoiding the Name of G-d, still violates the spirit of the First Commandment.
