Reverend a title prefixed by courtesy to the name of any clergyman, though "clerk "(clericus) is the legal and strictly proper description of clergymen, and is, in official documents, placed after (as "Reverend" is before) their names. In the Church of England and the Protestant Episcopal and Roman Catholic churches the title is given to ecclesiastics of the second and third orders, the bishops being styled "right reverend." In some churches ordained abbesses and prioresses are called "reverend mothers."
