WHAT DOES DOCTRINAL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Doctrine

Doctrine is a codification of beliefs or a body of teachings or instructions, taught principles or positions, as the body of teachings in a branch of knowledge or belief system. The Greek analogue is the etymology of catechism. Often doctrine specifically suggests a body of religious principles as it is promulgated by a church, but not necessarily; doctrine is also used to refer to a principle of law, in the common law traditions, established through a history of past decisions, such as the doctrine of self-defense, or the principle of fair use, or the more narrowly applicable first-sale doctrine. In some organizations, doctrine is simply defined as "that which is taught", in other words the basis for institutional teaching of its personnel internal ways of doing business.

Definition of doctrinal in the English dictionary

The definition of doctrinal in the dictionary is of or relating to a creed or body of teachings of a religious, political, or philosophical group presented for acceptance or belief; of or relating to dogma.
