Featured Term (selected at random):

DRUSILLA

The youngest daughter of Herod Agrippa I, the king who ordered the Apostle James beheaded and who persecuted Peter. She was the wife of Felix (Acts 24:24), the Roman procurator who presided at the trial of Paul in which Tertullus, the prosecutor, described the accused as follows: "The plain truth is that we find this man a perfect pest; he stirs up trouble among the Jews the world over, and is a ringleader of the Nazarene sect" (Acts 24:5). Drusilla listened with interest to Paul explain his faith later in a private hearing before Felix. (Etym. Latin feminine form of Drusus.
