Examples of "catholicity"
In Christian theology, and specially in ecclesiology, terms "Catholicism" and "Catholicity" are used in two basic forms, with capital "C" or just with small "c". When used with small "c", terms "catholicism" and "catholicity" generally designate theological doctrine of the "catholicity of the Church" without denominational connotations. On the other hand, when used with capital "C", terms "Catholicism" and "Catholicity" often designate a particular Christian denomination, depending on the personal views and theological positions of any particular author.

In 1842 he followed it with "Catholicity v. Sibthorp", called in its second edition of 1844 "The Catholicity of the Anglican Church vindicated, and the alleged Catholicity of the Roman Church disproved".
