Priest (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

canon

'priest' is the definition.
(canon is a kind of priest)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for canon that I've seen before include "General rule; cleric" , "General rule; clergyman" , "Body of works" , "Criterion; church official" , "accepted criterion" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent and the Penny Press.
