By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority?—Matthew, 21:23. It may seem almost superfluous to define so wellknown a word as authority, but since this word has several shades of meaning it may be advisable for the sake of clearness to agree upon those definitions that concern us in this article.
