 [No title]
The concept of the military order, then, met with some initial resistance, but this faded as the orders proved their worth in the Holy Land and became part of the religious establishment, and in time they were regarded as highly as any other religious order.
It is clear that the military orders did have a distinctive image in the literature of this period, but it is much more difficult to deduce a connection between this and their real-life images, or to explain why they appear in some literary works and not in others.
The problem here was that the military orders were claiming that they could not be tried in the king's court and were not answerable to the bishop, but only to the pope, and that they had papal privileges which effectively allowed them to choose their own judges in the church courts.

 SignOnSanDiego.com > News > Features -- Writers Guild celebrates members who wrote famous movie and TV lines
The Writers Guild of America is using billboards to promote its members, identifying them as the authors of famous film and television lines.

Indeed, as "infamy" (an equally well-known profile, but as a bad example; the antonym of fame) seems passing out of common English usage, even high-profile criminals may be considered to be famous, but they are not always celebrities, as this rather requires an active presence, at least in the media, while crime usually shuns publicity.
In other cases, particularly in the United States, celebrity may be confined to only one state: Lin Sue Cooney, for example, is a well known television reporter in Arizona, but she is not that well known in other areas.
Hilton is in some senses a special case; she is famous at least in part for being an example of the perceived negative or shallow aspects of celebrity life, and some believe she is going out of her way to fill that role and gather further attention.
