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.

"April is the cruellest month, breeding
lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
memory and desire, stirring
dull roots with spring rain."
