A passion excited by an object which causes a high degree of fear and detestation. It is a compound of wonder and fear. Sometimes it has a mixture of pleasure, from which, if predominant, it is denominated a pleasing horror. Such a horror seizes us at the view of vast and hanging precipices, a tempestuous ocean, or wild and solitary places. This passion is the original of superstition, as a wise and well- tempered awe is of religion. Horror and terror seem almost to be synomymous; but the former, I think, refers more to what disgusts; the latter to that which alarms us.
