[FOM] Church-Kleene or Feferman-Schutte

As fas as I remember all the proof-theoretic ordinals are recursive since they correspond to the strength of some recursive axiom system. So \Gamma_0 would be much smaller than \omega_1^CK.

But I am no proof-theorist so it would be better if someone feeling more confident about this could confirm it.

There I found almost everything, but I was not able to find this, so I am asking it here on the FOM list:
