Definition of hierarch:
There's odds o' fairies, and often enough I think the world is nothing else; troops, societies, hierarchies- S. T. C., a supreme hierarch; look at his face; think of meeting him at moonlight between Stowey and Alfoxden, like a great white owl, soft and plumy, with eyes of flame!"- "The Upton Letters", Arthur Christopher Benson.
Because that you have greatly lied, because You libel nations, and because no hand Of officer is raised to bid you stand, And falsehood is unpunished of the laws, I stand here in a public place to mark With level finger where you part the crowd- I stand to name you and to cry aloud: " Behold mendacity's great hierarch!"- "Black Beetles in Amber", Ambrose Bierce.
