Dedication

Additional Links

Often used as interchangeable with consecration. The dedication of a church is spoken; of as its consecration. A distinction is drawn to accord with the ancient Romans. Whatever was devoted directly to worship was called consecrated. The objects pertaining indirectly but intimately thereto were called dedicated (temples, altars, etc.). Hence dedication is an act by which a thing is set aside for a sacred use.
