Charles Buck Theological Dictionary
A term made use of to denote the act of receiving the Lord's supper. Those of the reformed and of the Greek church communicate under both kinds; those of the Romish only under one. The oriental communicants receive the species of wine by a spoon; and anciently they sucked it through a pipe, as has been observed by Beat Rheanus on Tertullian.
