Ecclesiastical wealth and aulic dignities. --Landor. [1913 Webster]

{Aulic council} (Hist.), a supreme court of the old German empire; properly the supreme court of the emperor. It ceased at the death of each emperor, and was renewed by his successor. It became extinct when the German empire was dissolved, in 1806. The term is now applied to a council of the war department of the Austrian empire, and the members of different provincial chanceries of that empire are called aulic councilors. --P. Cyc. [1913 Webster]
