Oh, that and Κριτὴς τῆς Οἰκουμένης - "Judge of the world"...
In some older documents I saw Κριτὴς τοῦ Κόσμου. Τhat one's even better.
Yeah, "Judge of the Universe" rulz!
It's even better than Vicar of Christ
One must needs be Vicar of Christ to judge the Universe: "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth." (Mat. 28:18)
Ah well, I just laugh at all those poetic titles Patriarchs gave themselves through the ages. I guess they're not meant to be taken too serious.

"Who wants to be consistent? The dullard and the doctrinaire, the tedious people who carry out their principles to the bitter end of action, to the reductio ad absurdum of practice. Not I."
