LONGANIMITY. n.s. [longanimitas, Latin; longanimité, Fr.]
Forbearance; patience of offences.
It had overcome the patience of Job, as it did the meek-
ness of Moses, and surely had mastered any but the longa
nimity and lasting sufferance of God.  Brown’s Vulg. Errours.
That innocent and holy matron had rather go clad in the
snowy white robes of meekness and longanimity, than in the
purple mantle of blood.  Howell’s England’s Tears.
