    Accepted by whom? Theologians? Bishops? The Pope? The depositum fidei? – Matt Gutting Nov 11 '15 at 21:32
  • @MattGutting By the Catholic Church of course. What is its official position on the definition of God by Anselm? – Red Rackham Nov 24 '15 at 0:59
  • What leads you to believe that there is an official position? – Matt Gutting Nov 24 '15 at 3:02
  • @MattGutting The Catholic Church has official positions on certain things such as contraceptives, if God created ex nihilo and if Jesus is God – Red Rackham Nov 24 '15 at 3:07
