medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

So, to summarize what John copied, a cathedral is always a "hoofdkerk", but a
"hoofdkerk" is not always a cathedral.

dom he?

But "big impressive church" is the perhaps best translation of "hoofdkerk".

wat is een kathedraal?

Het woord kathedraal stamt af van het Latijnse woord cathedralis, en wordt 
gebruikt om de hoofdkerk van een bisdom aan te duiden; dit is de kerk waar 
de bisschopszetel (in het Latijn cathedra) staat. In sommige talen is het 
woord 'dom' (in het Latijn domus) synoniem voor kathedraal; het betekent 
altijd 'bisschoppelijke hoofdkerk'.
