Christian Cyclopedia

About the Cyclopedia


Primarily, worship directed to God in His majesty but also performed to idols and men. The OT forms of worship varied (e.g., Ex 3:5; Jos 5:15; Jb 31:26–28; Ps 2:12; ). In RCm the term is applied to the erroneous worship of Jesus in the Eucharist, for which a ritual drawn up by Thomas* Aquinas is still used. See also Worship, 4, 5, 8.
