Quick Reference

In strict terminology ‘adoration’ denotes an act of worship due to God alone. In early times the word was sometimes used loosely to include the veneration paid to persons and objects of a sacred character. After the Iconoclastic Controversy a distinction came to be accepted between ‘latria’, the adoration of God, and ‘dulia’, the veneration of created things.
