The word dogma is used with different meanings by different theologians.
There is no one standard meaning.
I use dogma to refer to any infallible teaching of the Magisterium,
including those taught under:
1. papal infallibility
2. solemn definitions of Ecumenical Councils
3. teachings of the universal Magisterium
Some persons narrow the meaning of dogma only to # 1 and 2 above,
but this is not supported by the definition given in the Catechism.
