1910 New Catholic Dictionary
Impolite term used in English-speaking countries, to designate a member of the Catholic Church. Its origin can be traced to the Reformation, where it was first used to distinguish a Roman Catholic who believed in the supremacy of the Pope, from an Anglican who believed in the supremacy of the king. Papistry, papistic, and papistical are terms which are met with in English literature, all of impolite usage.
