JU’BILEE. n.s.


JU’BILEE. n.s. [jubilé, Fr. jubilum, from jubilo, low Latin.] A
publick festivity; a time of rejoicing; a season of joy.
Angels utt’ring joy, heav’n rung
With jubilee, and loud hosanna’s fill’d
Th’eternal regions.  Milton’s Paradise Lost.
Joy was then a masculine and a severe thing: the recreation
of the judgment, or rejoicing, the jubilee of reason.  South.
The town was all a jubilee of feasts.  Dryden.
