It may be true but it has nothing to do with what is being discussed. In the context you put it, it comes off as an attempt to put down those who are Orthodox for absolutely no reason.

Oh, I never noticed that! Interesting. I guess it makes sense, given that the context was western Christianity and the rise of Protestantism.

Do you have an example/citation? I'm curious enough that I'd like to see the exact spot for myself.

That's interesting, but are you sure? I wonder if you might be thinking of Vatican I.

No, definitely Trent. I'll see if I can find the reference later on, I don't have the time right now.

It uses the term in the Bull of Indiction several times. I suppose though that as it is referring to the cardinals, who technically hold churches in Rome, you could argue it means the Bishopric of Rome, although I myself don't buy that
