Church And State.
For another literary comment on church and state, see James Joyce misquoted here.
One responsibility of the Pontifex Maximus is to adjust the calendar. Thus, there was a Julian calendar and now a Gregorian calendar. (Scroll down.) I trust that, in the Terran Empire, there will still be a Pontifex Maximus, based in Rome.
Since I will entrain for London in less than an hour, this is definitely my last gasp until maybe sometime on Monday.
You all have a good weekend.
