      spoken comes from God, and Jesus taught the truth.

"And I charged your judges at that time, saying Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.

"Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God's; and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I wil hear it"—

Deuteronomy, I, 16-17.

"Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shat not respect persons, neither take a gift; for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous."—Deuteronomy, XVI, 19.

OATH "The essen-tial idea of an oath would seem to be, however, that of a recognition of God's authority by the party taking it, and an undertaking to accomplish the transaction to which ft refers as required by his laws."

""a religious act by which the party invokes God not
 only to witness the truth and sincerity of his promise, but
 also to avenge his imposture or violated faith, or, in other
 words, to punish his perjury if he shall be guilty of it,"
 10 Toullier, n. 343; Puffendorff, b. 4, c. 2, § 4. The essential idea of an oath would seem to be, however, that of a
 recognition of God's authority by the party taking it, and
 an undertaking to accomplish the transaction to which ft
 refers as required by his laws."

"Public Worship
 This term may mean the worship of God, con-
ducted and observed under public authority; or
 it may mean worship in an open or public place,
 without privacy or concealment; or it may mean
 the performance of religious exercises, under a
 provision for an equal right in the whole public
 to participate in its benefits; or it may be used in
contradistinction to worship in the family or the
 closet. In this country, what is called "public
 worship" is commonly conducted by voluntary so-
cieties, constituted according to their own notions
 of ecclesiastical authority and ritual propriety,
 opening their places of worship, and admitting to
 their religious services such persons, and upon
 such terms, and subject to such regulations, as
 they may choose to designate and establish. A
 church absolutely belonging to the public, and
 in which all persons without restriction have
 equal rights, such as the public enjoy in highways
 or public landings, is certainly a very rare institu-
tion. Attorney General v. Merrimack Mfg. Co., 14
 Gray (Mass.) 586." Page 1782

“ACEPHALI. The levelers in the reign of Hen. who acknowledged no head or superior. Leges H. 1; Cowell.

Emp. ch. 47.” Page 39

“JERA, or ERA. A fixed point of chronological
time, whence any number of years is counted;

vation of the word has been much contested.
Wharton.” Page 77

“ BLASPHEMY. In English Law
Blasphemy is the offense of speaking matter
relating to God, Jesus Christ, the Bible, or the
Book of Common Prayer, intended to wound the
feelings of mankind or to excite contempt and
hatred against the church by law established, or
to promote immorality. Sweet. In American Law
Any oral or written reproach maliciously cast
upon God, His name, attributes, or religion. Com.
v. Kneeland, 20 Pick. (Mass.) 213; Young v. State,
10 Lea (Tenn.) 165; People v. Ruggles, 8 Johns.
( N.Y.) 290, 5 Am.Dec. 335; Updegraph v. Corn.,
11 Serg. & R. (Pa.) 406. In general, blasphemy may be described as consisting in
speaking evil of the Deity with an impious purpose to
derogate from the divine majesty, and to alienate the
minds of others from the love and reverence of God.
It is purposely using words concerning God calculated
and designed to impair and destroy the reverence, respect,
and confidence due to Him as the intelligent creator, gov-
ernor, and judge of the world. It embraces the idea of
detraction, when used towards the Supreme Being, as
"calumny" usually carries the same idea when applied to
an individual. It is a willful and malicious attempt to
lessen men's reverence of God by denying His existence, or
His attributes as an intelligent creator, governor, and
judge of men, and to prevent their having confidence in
Him as such. Corn. v. Kneeland, 20 Pick. (Mass.) 211, 212.
The use of this word is, in modern law, exclusively con-
fined to sacred subjects; but blasphemia and blasphemare
were anciently used to signify the reviling by one person
of another. Nov. 77, c. 1, § 1; Spelman.” Page 216

“CHURCH. In its most general sense, the religious
society founded and established by Jesus Christ,
to receive, preserve, and propagate his doctrines

CHRISTIAN. Pertaining to Jesus Christ or the
religion founded by him; professing Christianity.
As a noun, it signifies one who accepts and pro-
fesses to live by the doctrines and principles of
the Christian religion; it does not include Mo-
hammedans, Jews, pagans, or infidels. State v.
Buswell, 40 Neb. 158, 58 N.W. 728, 24 L.R.A. 68.
One who believes or professes or is assumed to believe in Jesus Christ, and the truth as taught by Him. Conway v. Third Nat. Bank & Trust Co.,
118 N.J.Eq. 61, 177 A. 113, 116.

CHRISTIAN NAME. The baptismal name as
distinct from the surname. Stratton v. Foster, 11
Me. 467. The name which is given one after his
birth or at baptism, or is afterward assumed by
him in addition to his family name. Badger Lum-
ber Co. v. Collinson, 97 Kan. 791, 156 P. 724, 725.
A Christian name may consist of a single letter. Whar-
ton; People v. Reilly, 257 Ill. 538, 101 N.E. 54, Ann.Cas.
1914A, 1112. There is no presumption that letters are not
themselves Christian names, and where a letter or letters
appear before a surname they are treated, in the absence
of any showing to the contrary, as the Christian name.
Riley v. Litchfield, 168 Iowa, 187, 150 N.W. 81, 82, Ann.Cas. 1917B, 172.

the rolls and records of the chancery. Jacob” Page 575

“EASTER. A feast of the Christian church held in
memory of the Saviour's resurrection. The
Greeks and Latins call it "pascha," (passover,)
to which Jewish feast our Easter answers. This

“MORAVIANS. Otherwise called "Herrnhutters"
or "United Brethren." A sect of Christians whose
social polity is particular and conspicuous. It
sprung up in Moravia and Bohemia, on the open-

Steph.Comm. 338n.” Page 1161

“NAME. The designation of an individual person,
or of a firm or corporation. Riley v. Litchfield,
168 Iowa 187, 150 N.W. 81, 83, Ann.Cas.1917B, 172._
A person's "name" consists of one or more Christian or
given names and one surname or family name. Blakeney
v. Smith, 183 Miss. 151, 183 So. 920, 921. It is the distinc-
tive characterization in words by which one is known and
distinguished from others, - and description, or abbrevia-
tion, is not the equivalent of a "name." Putnam v. Bes-
som, 291 Mass. 217, 197 N.E. 147, 148. Custom gives one"
his father's family name, and such prxnomina as his par-
ents choose to put before it, but this is only general rule,
from which individual may, depart, if he choose. In re"

Pope makes himself God.

“PAPAL SUPREMACY. The supremacy which the
Pope claimed not only over the Emperor of the
Holy Roman Empire, but over all other Christian
princes. The theory was that they stood to the
Pope as feudal vassals to a supreme lord; as such,
the Pope claimed the right to enforce the duties
due to him from his feudal subordinates through
an ascending scale of penalties culminating in the
absolution of the prince's subjects from the bonds
of allegiance, and in the disposition of the sover-
eign himself. The papal supremacy was over-
thrown in England by acts of the Parliament which
met in 1529 and was dissolved in 1536, ending in
the Act of Supremacy. Hannis Taylor, Science of Jurispr.; Boyce, Holy Rom. Emp.; Freeman, Sel. Hist. Essays; 2 Phill. Intern. Law.” Page 1265 1266

“PARISH CHURCH. This expression has various
significations. It is applied sometimes to a select
body of Christians, forming a local spiritual as-
sociation, and sometimes to the building in which
the public worship of the inhabitants of, a parish
IS celebrated; but the true legal notion of a paro-
chial church is a consecrated place, having at-
tached to it the rights of burial and the admin. istration of the sacraments. Story, J., Pawlet v. Clark, 9 Cranch, 326, 3 L.Ed. 735.” Page 1271
