Re: Question about the renaming of ikkajo to ikkyo (philosphy)

Loose translation from
Within a religious group, a kyoshi is personnel who has a leadership position with the general believers and governs religious activities and doctrines. It can refer as a general designation for clergy, monks, priests, and ministers who are impartial to any specific religion or as a title given in certain religious groups such as Shingon, Konkokyo, Tenrikyo, and Jodo Shinshu.
I might translate 条 as "article" or "clause." Also pertinent may be its meanings along the line of "logic" and "reason," too.
