The **projective field** of a weight one newform is the number field fixed by the kernel of its associated projective Galois representation $\bar\rho\colon \Gal(\overline\Q/\Q)\to \PGL_2(\C)$.

This number field is typically identified as the Galois closure of a sibling subfield with minimal degree and absolute discriminant.
