  Cleric - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term "clerk" derives from "cleric", since in medieval times the clergy were one of the few groups who could read, and therefore were often employed to do bookkeeping and similar work.
In many systems, clerics are restricted in the sort of weapons they can bear; the most common restriction, taken from European history, forbids the use of edged weapons such as swords.
Related to the cleric is the paladin, who in these games is typically a warrior aligned with a religious order, and who uses his martial skills to advance its holy cause.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Cleric
While cleric in its strict sense means one who has received the ecclesiastical tonsure, yet in general sense it is also employed in canon law for all to whom clerical privileges have been extended.
While the obligation of obedience is binding on all clerics, it is strengthened for priests by the solemn promise made at ordination, and for all holders of benefices by the canonical oath.
When, however, a cleric who has received only minor orders or even tonsure, after losing his privileges, has been restored to the clerical state, this restitution, even when solemn, is merely ceremonious and is not considered as a new conferring of tonsure or minor orders.

 Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | Senior Shia cleric criticises US and calls for calm
Iraq's most senior Shia cleric, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, last night condemned US forces for the way they were putting down a Shia uprising and called for calm on all sides.
But with hundreds of armed supporters of the radical Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr in control of most police stations and occupying the streets around the main shrine in Najaf, the ayatollah, who lives in seclusion in the same city, is in a weak position.
The statement was a clear effort to discredit the cleric, who trades on his status as the surviving son of Ayatollah Mohammed Sadiq al-Sadr, who was assassinated by the Saddam Hussein regime in 1999 with his two eldest sons.
