Why A Doctorate & Title of Nobility?

The term 'nobility' derives from Latin nobilitas, "well-known, famous, notable". In ancient Roman society, nobiles originated as an informal designation for the governing class for persons who had risen through the ranks of his own merit. In general, to be 'titled' is to hold a title of honor granted by the authority of the institution, associated with the nobility, or peerage titles (hereditary peerage is now merely a tradition). 'Doctor' is a title, but not necessarily a title of honour, or mark of nobility. The title of Doctor is generally not awarded by the peerage, but by an academic, secular organization with a charter to award such titles.

The Sacred Medical Order is an ecclesiastical Order. Our titles and honours are one of the prerogative of the Order and are issued by either the Sovereign Council or the College of Priests upon final approval by the Grand Master. The Church has awarded the distinction of knighthood since the early medieval period. Such honors originally conferred nobility, but today the Ecclesiastical Orders are a means by which the Church may personally distinguish those who have particularly served the Church and society. The Ecclesiastical Orders are awarded by diplomas that have been signed by the Grand Master before the Chapter General.

Description: Following ancient and monastic traditions, we offer a heuristic learning opportunity that translates into advancing one's spiritual life, culminating in the awarding of a doctorate of unique academic area with reception of a title of nobility.

TITLE OF NOBILITY: Nobility is a social class, traditionally ranked immediately under royalty, with holder's that possess more acknowledged privileges and higher social status than most other classes in a society, membership thereof originally being hereditary but later was able to be earned. The privileges associated with nobility today are mostly informal but may constitute substantial advantages over or relative to non-nobles, or may be largely honorary (e.g., precedence), and vary from country to country and era to era.

While noble status formerly conferred significant privileges in most jurisdictions, by the 21st century it had become a largely honorary dignity in most societies, although a few, residual privileges may still be preserved legally (e.g., Netherlands, Spain, UK) and some Asian, Pacific and African cultures continue to attach considerable significance to formal hereditary rank or titles.

A knight is a person granted an honorary title of knighthood by a monarch or other political leader for service to the monarch or country, especially in a military capacity; or to the Church. Historically, in Europe, knighthood was conferred upon mounted warriors during the era of the crusades. During the High Middle Ages, knighthood was considered a class of nobility. By the Late Middle Ages, the rank had become associated with the ideals of chivalry, a code of conduct for the perfect courtly Christian warrior. Since the early modern period, the title of knight is purely honorific, usually bestowed by a monarch or state, as in the British honours system, often for non-military service to the country. The modern female equivalent in the United Kingdom is Dame.

The orders, decorations, and medals of the Holy See include titles, chivalric orders, distinctions and medals honoured by the Holy See, with the Pope as the fount of honour, for deeds and merits of their recipients to the benefit of the Holy See, the Catholic Church, or their respective communities, societies, nations and the world at large.
