AbstractPriests were present in world literature from its beginning as a closely linked literary and religious culture. Priests were the first writers. Sacred and secular texts show priests as an intermediary between god and man, especially in the act of sacrifice. Sometimes he is a personification of certain religious, moral and political issues. Catholic priests are sometimes depicted as followers of Christ and servants of the servants of God. They may be heroic figures, reflecting life for God and people, or practical, close to people in their daily lives with a sense of humor. A priest serves as a moral authority, although he is not devoid of human weaknesses and shortcomings, with tolerance condemned in the satirical songs.
