A letter to the Hebrews pictures our priesthood as a select group of men chosen by God for very high purposes.
The priesthood that we find can differ from that biblical ideal, since in 450 AD our priesthood was assimilated into worldly nobility.
Back then the race of the Franks overcame all of Europe, and in their simplified social structure, everyone belonged to either to the nobility or to the class of the slaves. The nobility out of respect for the priests, began treating all of them like nobles.
