Probably one of the best definitions of catholicity was given by Karl Barth. According to him catholicity means the universality, inclusiveness, identity and continuity which underlie the church in spite of all differences or variations. The basic character of the church is the same in any place and through all ages, and the church is always and in all places obliged to uphold it.
