CANOPY . A loan-word from the Gr. kônôpeion , a mosquito-net. It is used to render this word in the description of the bed of Holofernes with its mosquito-curtain ( Jdt 10:21 etc.); also in Isaiah 4:5 RV [Note: Revised Version.] for Heb. chuppah in the sense of a protective covering. This Heb. word is becoming naturalized in English to denote the canopy under which a Jewish bridegroom and bride stand while the wedding ceremony is being performed.

A. R. S. Kennedy.
